Chinese premier congratulates Pashinyan on election as Armenian PM

Состоялась первая встреча Пашиняна с Путиным

According to Oxu.Az, the due statement came from Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, commenting on U.S. sanctions against the products of the Russian military-industrial complex in his interview to "Russia 24" TV channel.

Armenia's parliament elected Nikol Pashinyan as the country's new prime minister on Tuesday. They have shown the world that they can demand less corruption and more accountability from their government and win.

On May 14, a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan is expected to take place on the sidelines of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council's session in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi.

The Armenian PM repeated his statement that the relations of the two countries must be developed independently from geopolitical factors. "When the time is appropriate, I believe we should extend an invitation to the new Prime Minister, Nikol Pashinyan, to come to the USA and meet with Congress".

PGeorgian PM Kvirikashvili invited Pashinyan to visit Georgia and expressed his willingness for the further development of relations with Armenia.

The appointment ended weeks of street protests led by Pashinyan against the election of Serzh Sargsyan, Armenia's president for the past 10 years, to the premiership office.

Pashinyan's government, according to the new Prime Minister, will also work to advance women's rights in Armenia and engage more women in government.
