Today, RA President Robert Kocharyan met with Russian Prime Minister
Michael Fradkov.

"We see great progress in the Russian-Armenian collaboration, but a
number of issues in the transportation-communication sphere hinder this
fruitful co-operation," said President Kocharyan during the meeting.

At the same time he added that the issues connected with transportation
are compensated by investment projects, namely in the construction
and energy fields.

In Michael Fradkov's words, he will meet with his Armenian counterpart
in Moscow on December 1 to discuss the issues of the two countries'

Igor Levitin, Minister of the RF Transportation and co-president of
the Armenian-Russian intergovernmental committee, was also present
during the meeting of Robert Kocharyan and Michael Fradkov.
