Armenian president begins state visit to Russia

Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan will arrive on Sunday in Moscow on a three-day state visit to Russia, the Armenian presidential press service said.


Sargsyan will hold talks with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday.


The agenda of the talks includes bilateral relations, the situation in the Caucasus region, and the settlement of the long-running Nagorny Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.


Armenian experts believe that one of the main topics of the discussion between the two presidents will be the strengthening of Russia’s role in integration processes within the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Armenia’s place in these processes.


Sargsyan is accompanied by Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandian and other senior government officials during the visit.
