Russian President Vladimir Putin reaffirmed today that his country remains Armenia's strategic and trade-economic partner during a meeting with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the margins of a gathering of the leaders of the countries comprising the Eurasian Economic Union in the southern Russian city of Sochi.

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.

"Like always we are ready to develop and deepen relations with the neighboring country of Armenia in all areas", reassured the Iranian diplomat.

Pashinian praised what he called the "balanced position that Russian Federation demonstrated during our political crisis", adding: "It was a very constructive position".

Putin in turn assured that Russian Federation remains a leading trade and economic partner for Armenia, with a share of about 40% investments in Armenia's economy.

"That is the strategic relationship of allies between Armenia and Russian Federation". "But I also want to state that our goal is a great repatriation - to concentrate Armenian's human, financial, economic, spiritual and scientific potential or most of it in Armenia and to ensure its security and normal development". Some parliamentarians from the ruling Republican Party also cast their votes in his favor. He added that "there is a consensus on this issue in Armenia".
