Armenian PM Abrahamyan receives EU delegation

Armenian Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan received a European Union delegation headed by EU Ambassador Traian Hristea on Friday.

Abrahamyan said his government will take steps to deepen bilateral cooperation with the EU.

Hristea congratulated Abrahamyan on his appointment to the post of prime minister and said he highly valued the constructive joint efforts made by both sides while Abrahamyan was speaker of the National Assembly.

He also reaffirmed the EU's readiness to continue assisting the government with ongoing reforms and enhance EU-Armenia relations.

Both sides said they should build on the joint statement made at the Vilnius Summit in November, which reinforces their commitment to boosting cooperation in areas of mutual interest, as well as the need to update the EU-Armenia joint policy action plan.
