President Vahagn Khachaturyan had a meeting with the President of Iraq Abdul Latif Rashid
Within the framework of the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, President Vahagn Khachaturyan had a meeting with the President of Iraq Abdul Latif Rashid.
President Vahagn Khachaturyan noted that Iraq is considered to be Armenia’s reliable partner in the region and our country finds it highly important to deepen the multi-sector cooperation with that country.
The President of Iraq noted that the Armenians living in Iraq enjoy the support of the Iraqi Government and that they highly appreciate Armenian-Iraqi close relations. According to him, in the recent years, there’ve been positive dynamics in the bilateral trade turnover, which is a sign of serious bilateral economic potential, and we should make efforts to realize it.
President Vahagn Khachaturyan highlighted that Armenia is in amazing relations with the vast majority of Islamic countries, including Arab countries. Within this context, President Khachaturyan expressed concern over the recent speech that the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev delivered in the framework of the Arab League summit, where he manipulated the religious factor in his accusations against Armenia, adding a religious color to the conflict of Nagorno Karabakh and trying to set up the Islamic, in this case Arab countries against Armenia. President Khachaturyan strongly emphasized that there isn’t and can’t be any religious aspect or content in the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, as the Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh are fighting for their right to live and create safely in their homeland.
The sides agreed on continuing the mutual contacts aimed at the development of economic relations and activation of cooperation in various fields.
