YEREVAN. – The objective of establishing a parliamentary friendship group with Costa Rica is to strengthen Armenia’s positive image in Latin America, and to fight against the Azerbaijani propaganda against Armenians.
Ruben Rubinyan, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Foreign Relations of the National Assembly of Armenia, stated about the aforementioned at Monday’s meeting of this committee, during its debates on the matter of formation of an Armenia-Costa Rica Parliamentary Friendship Group in the Armenian legislature.
In his words, taking advantage of Armenia’s passive position in recent years, Azerbaijan has stepped up its efforts in Latin America, and as a result, several countries in that region have passed resolutions against Armenia.
The Armenian MPs gave a positive conclusion to the said proposal which the above-said committee had submitted.
