Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan of Armenia on Friday sent a congratulatory message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada on the latter’s National Day: Canada Day.

"Armenia appreciates the development of relations with Canada and is determined to deepen them as much as possible. The efforts of the Government of Canada and personally your efforts to support the accomplishment of democracy in the Republic of Armenia, one of the brightest manifestations of which was the visit of Special Envoy to Europe Stéphane Dion to Yerevan, are greatly appreciated. The recommendations in the comprehensive report published based on the results of that visit can serve as a roadmap for the effective development of relations between our countries.

Once again congratulating you and the friendly people of Canada on this holiday, I express my readiness to continue the close cooperation for the sake of peace, prosperity and friendship of the peoples of the two countries," the Armenian PM’s message reads, in particular.
