YEREVAN. – The purpose of the Armenian delegation's visit to the US was not only to meet with Senate and House of Representatives’ colleagues, but also to establish direct contacts with them as it was the first visit by the new composition. Lilit Makunts, head of the majority My Step faction in the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia, stated this at the November 25 press conference in the NA, summing up the results of the Armenian delegation's visit to the United States.
According to her, the format of this visit included meetings not only with congress members, but also with analysts. "The main goal of the Armenian-American friendship group is to raise the level of bilateral relations," Makunts said. “We have proposed to cooperate in the field of human rights, strengthening of democratic structures, and prevention of corruption. We have also proposed to our Senate and House of Representatives colleagues to pass an act in support of Armenia."
Makunts added that all this implies certain bilateral commitments.
