‘’I would like to convey my cordial congratulations on your re-appointment as the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia.
The mandate you received from the voters during the last elections showed the strong support of the Armenian people to the reforms that your country had initiated during the last a few years. There is no alternative to democratic principles and reforms in your aspiration to build prosperous, safe and democratic Armenia. Let me reaffirm Lithuania’s determination to assist Armenia on this path. Lithuania has always been enthusiastic for stronger ties between Armenia and the rest of Europe. The Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement, which came into effect this year, can bring the Armenian society to higher standards of democracy - a greener environment, as well as better opportunities for business and education. I am confident that your country's progress, as well as its long-term goals, will be confirmed during the Eastern Partnership summit to take place in autumn.
Lithuania enjoys friendly relations with Armenia. This year, marking the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Lithuania, the first country in the world to recognize Armenia's independence, we are determined to continue strengthening the firm ties and friendship between our peoples. I am convinced that there are many opportunities and incentives for the further development of relations between our two countries in business, culture and other spheres. I am confident that the partnership, mutual trust, mutually beneficial cooperation between Lithuania and Armenia will continue to move forward in a more friendly spirit. I hope that your visit to Lithuania in the near future can further strengthen our relations.
I wish you and your government success in your initiatives. Please, accept the assurance of my highest consideration. "
