Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan received French Ambassador to Armenia Jonathan Lacôte. The Premier expressed high appreciation of the current level of Armenian-French relations, noting that the task of the two countries’ governments is only to strengthen, but also to rebuild and develop them anew.
“I am convinced that the wish is mutual. We look forward to French President Emmanuel Macron’s upcoming visit amid ongoing heavy preparations for the Francophonie Summit due this fall in Yerevan,” Nikol Pashinyan said.
In turn, the Ambassador noted that the recent political developments in our country prompted them to treat the Armenian-French relationship in a new way. “France was closely following the developments and now many people want to come over. The cooperation between Armenia and the International Organization of La Francophonie will continue to develop successfully because the values advocated during your revolution were in line with the Organization’s system of values,” the Ambassador said.
Jonathan Lacôte underscored that the French President is ready to meet Armenia’s wish and contribute to the development of bilateral relations with a focus on economic cooperation. The Ambassador emphasized that France is more than ever supportive of the reforms initiated by the new Armenian government.
The parties discussed issues related to bilateral cooperation in economy, education, culture and other spheres.
