The two ministers are the co-chairs of the intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation. Abrahamyan assured Sokolov and his guests of his willingness to cooperate on bilateral relations.
"I am aware that there is a serious potential build up in the activities of the intergovernmental commission," Abrahamyan said. "We boast significant achievements in this field, and I will do everything to build on the ongoing cooperation."
The intergovernmental commission focuses on allied relations, strategic partnership and economic cooperation between Russia and Armenia.
