The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Prime Min­is­ter Nechir­van Barzani re­ceived Mr. Levon Sargsyan, Am­bas­sador-at-large and Spe­cial En­voy of the Ar­me­nian Gov­ern­ment and Mr. Karin Gre­go­rian Am­bas­sador of Ar­me­nia to Iraq, on Wed­nes­day, March 18, 2015.

Am­bas­sador Sar­gasyan con­veyed the greet­ings of the Pres­i­dent and Prime Min­is­ter of Ar­me­nia to Prime Min­is­ter Barzani and stressed his coun­try’s de­sire to build solid ties with Er­bil.

In this re­gard, he pro­posed the for­ma­tion of a joint friend­ship com­mis­sion be­tween the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and Ar­me­nia, that would work to de­velop co­op­er­a­tion in a num­ber of fields like cul­ture, trade, econ­omy and other ar­eas of com­mon in­ter­est.

The guest del­e­ga­tion also ex­pressed its gov­ern­ment’s de­sire to open Ar­me­nian Con­sulate in Er­bil in the near fu­ture and start di­rect flights be­tween Er­bil and Yere­van.

Sar­gasyan pointed out that his coun­try’s pri­vate sec­tor is also in­ter­ested in in­vest­ing in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion, for which he asked for Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment’s as­sis­tance.

PM Barzani wel­comed the de­ci­sion of open­ing the Ar­me­nian Con­sulate in Er­bil and start­ing di­rect flights to the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

He said, he will fully sup­port the for­ma­tion of a joint friend­ship com­mis­sion be­tween Er- bil and Yere­van, which would dis­cuss those ar­eas where both sides can work to­gether, adding that the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment is pre­pared to as­sist Ar­me­nia’s pri­vate sec­tor to in­vest in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion in ac­cor­dance with the in­vest­ment laws of the Re­gion.

The Prime Min­ster stressed the im­por­tance of po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic re­la­tions be­tween the two sides, as well as de­vel­op­ing ed­u­ca­tional co­op­er­a­tion, par­tic­u­larly in the field of pro­vid­ing schol­ar­ship to stu­dents wish­ing to study in Ar­me­nia.
