JERUSALEM—On a working visit to Israel on Thursday, Armenia’s Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian met with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
President Rivlin welcomed the Armenian Foreign Minister’s visit to Israel, and voiced hope that it would contribute to the reinforcement of bilateral relations.
Nalbandian noted that the Armenian and Jewish peoples are linked by millennia-long traditions of friendship, which creates a good basis for the further reinforcement of inter-state relations.
Rivlin and Nalbandian attached importance to the intensification of political dialogue, which, they said, will create opportunities for embracing new spheres of cooperation.
The two officials also stressed what they called the joint responsibility of the Armenian and Jewish peoples to prevent crimes against humanity.
