YEREVAN. – Armenia also was not apathetic toward the dismissal of US President Donald Trump’s security advisor, John Bolton, according to Hraparak (Square) newspaper.
Hraparak asked Deputy Foreign Minister Artak Apitonian: Will that resignation bring about agenda changes in Armenia-US relations?
There is a need to know who the next security advisor is so that we know in which direction the relations are going to proceed. In any case, quite good working relations had been established with Mr. Bolton.
What level of meetings is expected during [PM] Nikol Pashinyan’s [forthcoming] visit to the US?
The visit of the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense to Armenia is taking place just as you are asking this question to me.
Will it be crucial for future meetings?
RF [Russian Federation] Ambassador to the RA [Republic of Armenia], [Sergey] Kopirkin, finally announced yesterday [Wednesday] that [Russian President] V. Putin will come to Armenia. What do you think? Was it related to Bolton’s resignation?
I just know that Mr. Ambassador stated: V. Putin will come to Armenia.
Have you started preparing for the visit?
Preparations for the EAEU [Eurasian Economic Union] meeting have begun half a year ago.
