Mr. Vladimir Andreichenko, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus, had a meeting with H.E.

The Chairman of the House of Representatives congratulated the Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia to the Republic of Belarus with the beginning of the diplomatic mission, noting the traditionally friendly nature of the Belarusian-Armenian relations.

Vladimir Andreichenko gave a positive assessment to the developing dialogue and cooperation between the Parliaments of Belarus and Armenia on the bilateral and multilateral levels.

There was noted the importance of participation in this work, in addition to government agencies and other organizations, diasporas of the two countries.

Both sides emphasized the importance of preserving the memory of the exploits of the peoples of Belarus and Armenia in the Great Patriotic War, including in the framework of the events held on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Belarus from the German fascist invaders.

Plans for participating in various international events in 2019 were also discussed.
