Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan met with Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo at Paris City Hall. Welcoming Nikol Pashinyan to France, the Mayor of Paris said: “Mr. Prime Minister, we have always stood by Armenia and we will continue to maintain close contacts. We have adopted a clear position in this difficult situation. Please rest assured that we will not leave Armenia and the Armenian people alone.”

Noting that he had kept fond recollections of their first meeting, Nikol Pashinyan said that the arrangements made at the previous meeting had been implemented. The Acting Prime Minister evoked the inauguration of a TUMO center in Paris. “Madam Mayor, we look forward to seeing you in Yerevan this October; we will discuss our future plans during your visit. I would like to thank you for your initiative to name a square in honor of Armenia in Paris. This is an important initiative that warms our hearts. I hope that the ongoing cooperation between our capital cities will deepen ahead, especially in the fields of education, infrastructure and tourism,” Nikol Pashinyan said, confident that with the support of its friends, Armenia will overcome the crisis and the population will regain its optimism.

Anne Hidalgo expressed confidence that she will be able to discuss and implement new initiatives with the mayor of Yerevan during her next visit to Yerevan. Speaking about the situation established following the Artsakh war, the Mayor of Paris assured that France will continue to be sensitive to Armenia. “It is not only the fate of Armenia; our fate and the fate of Armenia are interconnected. We will be consistent in our efforts aimed at criminalizing the denial of the Armenian Genocide,” Anne Hidalgo said.
