New Armenian PM Pashinian promises Putin close ties will endure

Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan and Russian President Vladimir Putin met today in Sochi, as Radio Azatutyun reports.

After the "velvet revolution" victory, Pashinyan did not make such harsh criticisms of the Eurasian Economic Union.

Elsewhere, Rouhani noted the withdrawal of the USA from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, saying the move was against global obligations and Resolution 2231 of the United Nations Security Council; "the Islamic Republic of Iran will stay in the JCPOA as long as its interests are guaranteed by the negotiating parties", he added.

"All conditions have been created for us to live and work in our homeland", the Armenpress news agency quotes him as saying. This regards economic policy and security aspects.

Putin called Armenia Russia's "closest" economic and security partner and ally in the Caucasus region, according to a Kremlin read-out of the first meeting between the two leaders on Monday.

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

Pashinian praised what he called the "balanced position that Russian Federation demonstrated during our political crisis", adding: "It was a very constructive position". Many tourists from Russian Federation come to Armenia, which is really nice. "I think [they will be held] this year", Pashinyan told reporters, Panorama.am reports.

"It was very fascinating to watch the parade on the Red Square".

It was Pashinyan's first meeting with a foreign leader since being elected prime minister on May 8.

Russian Federation did not intervene militarily, but was in close contact with Armenian politicians during the protests.

In the second round of vote in the 105-seat parliament, 59 lawmakers backed Pashinyan's candidacy, with 42 voting against and four absent. After the elections, the ruling Armenian party stated that it joins the opposition and refuses from all the positions in the Government.
