Luxembourg stands ready to develop relations with Armenia. President of the Chamber of Deputies of Luxembourg, Claude Wiseler, stated this during a press conference in the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia Wednesday.

Thanking NA speaker Allen Simonyan for his hospitality, Wiseler emphasized that it is a great honor for him to be in Armenia, and his official visit to Armenia proves that there is a willingness to develop relations between Armenia and Luxembourg.

He noted that Luxembourg is also included in the European Union civilian monitoring mission in Armenia, that this shows Luxembourg's commitment to regional security and peace.

"I believe that this visit will strengthen relations between our countries and lead to closer cooperation in the future. I would like to say that Armenia has our full support on its road to transition to democracy. We also welcome the ratification [by Armenia] of the Rome Statute," said the Luxembourg parliament speaker.

Wiseler informed that the Chamber of Deputies of Luxembourg unanimously passed all the resolutions and decisions related to Armenia.

"We [i.e. Luxembourg] will continue our engagement in the EU civilian [monitoring] mission [in Armenia], which is important for us. If necessary, we will also strengthen the mission and assist in the resolution of the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Also, we are working on a new Armenia-EU project, Luxembourg is trying to advance it in Brussels. We clearly declare that the release of [Armenian] prisoners of war [by Azerbaijan] is a precondition for peace talks. This is clear to us, and the parliament of Luxembourg agrees on this matter," Claude Wiseler concluded.
