Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and his Armenian counterpart
Tigran Sargsyan have discussed the development of economic cooperation
between the two countries.

Medvedev and Sargsyan met at the meeting of the heads of governments
of the CIS countries in Ashgabat.

"Our agenda is traditional. I have an idea of what you will be asking
me, but we can still discuss any issues related to the development
of economic and humanitarian relations between Russia and Armenia,"
Medvedev said at the beginning of the meeting.

Sargsyan, in turn, said Armenia attaches special importance to the
development of relations with Russia.

"Russia is our strategic partner and number one economic partner.

Russian investment in our economy exceeds 60%," he said, adding that
Armenia is interested in intensifying this cooperation.
