/PanARMENIAN.Net/ "Chances that the American party will approve of
Armenia's program within the Millenium Challenges project depend on the
efficiency of the joint work of the US and Armenia," stated Director of
the Millennium Challenges Account Alex Russin in the course of today's
press conference in Yerevan upon the completion of the sitting of the
US-Armenian Working Group for Economic Cooperation. He said he was
pleased that the Armenian Government had submitted its program, adding
"we are ready to discuss it." "Along with the Armenian Government we
will solve all technical issues referring to the program presented,"
Russin noted. In his words, the process of adoption of the program
will finish with the signing of a respective document. In his words,
17 countries at the moment have the right to present their programs and
with one of them - Madagascar - the document is already signed. Now
another 4 countries, among which is Georgia, are at the final stage
of consideration. "This means that the US Congress was already
informed that a document should be signed with those countries,"
Russin noted. In his turn head of the US delegation, coordinator of
the European and Eurasian Program Tom Adams appreciated the program
submitted by the Armenian Government within the Millenium Challenges
