Congratulating the Ambassador on assuming office, the Prime Minister expressed hope that he would contribute to the strengthening of the ongoing political dialogue and developing economic partnership between the two countries. Nikol Pashinyan was pleased to recall his September meeting with the Czech Prime Minister at the UN Headquarters in New York, where they discussed partnership prospects and agreed to reciprocate high-level official visits.

The Premier expressed gratitude for the Czech parliament’s ratification of the EU-Armenia Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement (CEPA), noting that a speedy ratification of the document would contribute to Armenia’s reform agenda.

Honored and pleased with the opportunity to carry out a diplomatic mission in Armenia, Ambassador Kopecky assured that during his tenure he would spare no effort to strengthen the Armenian-Czech cooperation. He said that the Czech Republic supports the democratic reforms in Armenia and is prepared to develop ties on both bilateral and multilateral levels, including the EU and the Eastern Partnership.

The parties discussed ways of expanding trade and economic exchanges in all areas of mutual interest. They touched upon the prospects of direct air communications, and exchanged views over the visa liberalization process with the EU.

Taking the opportunity, Prime Minister Pashinyan highly valued the Czech Republic’s balanced position on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement process.
