MOSCOW (Golos Armenii daily)–Speaking on the new Russian-Armenian agreement–Chairman of the Russian Federation Council Yegor Stroyev said there is no need to hurry with signing of the agreement–as the work over the agreement continues and changes are being made.
"We should not forget that Armenia is not a foreign country for us. It is close to us by spirit and mentality. It’s the only country which supports our position regarding NATO. Armenia accepted Christianity in the fourth century–Russia in the tenth century–so we have the same faith," Stroyev declared.
