The head of the House of Representatives has highly appreciated the work of the Armenian diplomat in Belarus, noting that the business and inter-parliamentary ties and human relations that have been developing during his diplomatic mission in Belarus, will be in demand in his new position and will serve not only to strengthen, but also to expand cooperation between Belarus and Armenia.

According to Vladimir Andreichenko, the Interparliamentary Commission on cooperation between the National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus and the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia has made a great contribution to the development of the Belarusian-Armenian collaboration.
