President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian paid a working visit to Saudi Arabia, the Staff of the President of Armenia reports.
“The 26th of October 2021 will become a special page in the history of Armenian-Arab relations and particularly the relations between the Republic of Armenia and Saudi Arabia.
President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian paid a working visit to Saudi Arabia. This unprecedented event will unequivocally become a turning point in Armenia’s international relations.
Since Armenia’s independence, no Armenian official had ever visited Saudi Arabia due to the absence of diplomatic relations between Armenia and Saudi Arabia, and the President of Armenia took a historic step by paying the first visit to the country, which has an exceptional role and significance in the Arab World and the Islamic World.
At the airport in the capital of Saudi Arabia, President Armen Sarkissian was greeted at the highest state level, namely by State Minister of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia Adel al-Jubeir, and according to the official protocol, the national flag of the Republic of Armenia was raised at the airport,” the press release reads.
