We highly value the relations with Jordan because we see the Middle East, in general, and your country, in particular, as a direction of strategic partnership. I am very happy that our bilateral relations are on the rise. We already have concrete results and specific directions of mutual interest. I am also glad that you are accompanied by business people, and we can sign a relevant document to make our relations even better and much more effective.
I am pleased for this opportunity to meet you again. I would like to stress that the Armenians have kept very positive historical recollections of Jordan because your people supported the survivors of the Armenian Genocide that adds warmth to our attitude for Jordan and the Jordanian people, which is a very strong ground for developing bilateral relations, and I hope that we will be able to build stronger bonds on that ground. Thank you very much.”

I was given a very warm welcome on my arrival in Armenia yesterday, and as you said, I hope this is just one of my many future visits. We have been bound by special ties of friendship for many years, and I hope it will continue in the same spirit. There is still much to do in the years to come, and I am very optimistic and impressed with your hospitality.”
