Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan today had a meeting with President of Moldova Igor Dodon on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, reports the news service of the Office of the Prime Minister.
Greeting the President of Moldova, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated the following: “I’m very glad to meet you again. We meet during various events that are held within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union, the CIS and other international organizations, and I believe our economic ties need to be as intense as our meetings are. The major item on our agenda is the development and intensification of our economic relations and the organizing of meetings between our business circles.
I’m planning to pay an official visit to Moldova this year, and I recently had a meeting with the Prime Minister of Moldova in Almaty. I believe we have many common interests in terms of politics and economy. We cooperate well, but the major issue is the intensification of economic ties.”
President of Moldova Igor Dodon stated the following: “We have managed to have many meetings since we first met last year. I’m very glad that we are collaborating within the scope of the CIS. Moldova is an observer in Eurasian Economic Commission. I would like to state that our bilateral agenda is very active, but I fully agree that the economic results don’t correspond to the existing potential of our countries. I fully hope we succeed in giving a new impulse to our bilateral ties this year.
From February 24 to 25, the President of the Parliament of Moldova will pay an official visit to Armenia. I believe the visit of our parliamentary speaker, the meeting of the co-chairs of the intergovernmental commission, the session of the intergovernmental commission and your official visit will give a new impulse to our relations. Moldova and Armenia have had great relations throughout history. There is an Armenian community in Moldova, and the members of the community hold offices.”
During the meeting, Prime Minister Pashinyan and President Dodon touched upon the issues to be considered during the upcoming session of the Armenian-Moldovan Intergovernmental Commission and stated that the Commission will prepare the documents that will be considered during the Prime Minister’s official visit to Moldova scheduled in the first half of this year.
