A meeting was held in the Senate with the Vice President of Uruguay, the President of the Senate, Beatriz Argimón, which was also attended by the President of the House of Representatives, Sebastián Andújar.
Welcoming President Vahagn Khachaturyan, the President of the Senate thanked him for his visit and emphasized that she was happy to host the President of Armenia in the Senate of Uruguay, which they also call the "House of Democracy," since for Uruguay democracy is an unparalleled value and since the establishment of the Republic, all parliamentary parties have held the office.

In this context, President Khachaturyan emphasized that the role of the Parliament in establishing and strengthening the democratic institutions, as well as in the state administration system of Armenia in general, is very significant, as our country has transitioned to a parliamentary administration system since 2018.

During the conversation, the President of the Republic, represented by the President of the Senate, thanked the people and the state of Uruguay for being the first to recognize the Genocide, as well as for taking a clear and fair position on the challenges faced by the Republic of Armenia in recent years.
