Relations between the Armenian National Congress and ALDE have an ancient and rich history, said ALDE co-chair Henrik Bach Mortensenat at joint press conference of the co-chairs of the Armenian National Congress, the European Liberals and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) in Yerevan on Friday.
According to him, the organization represents the union of various liberal parties in Europe.
“The European Parliament will soon hold elections and ALDE expects to add new parties to its members,” said Mortensenat.
There are many parties and movements with liberal views in Europe, and it is extremely important to have partners not only within Europe but also abroad, noted Henrik Bach adding they appreciate cooperation with the liberal parties in Armenia.
Mortensenat noted that the values, which are shared by their organization, are based on the principles of human rights and the separation of power, which is connected with ensuring the principles of gender equality, freedom of choice and the right to freedom of expression.
