On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Armenia and on her own behalf, Arpine Hovhannisyan expressed deep gratitude to the European Union for the close co-operation and emphasised that the jointly implemented programmes were extensive and systemic.

The Minister stated that the programmes implemented within the scope of the co-operation with the European Union were successful, well-targeted and goal-oriented.
