On a visit to Vienna, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan held a meeting with Federal Chancellor Werner Faymann of the Republic of Austria.
Serzh Sargsyan praised the continuous promotion of the Armenian-Austrian multi-sector collaboration during Werner Faymann’s time in office, but added, at the same time, that there is still great unrealized potential for bilateral cooperation. The President of Armenia assured that the Armenian government is ready to undertake additional steps aimed at further enlarging the bilateral agenda and promoting collaboration. Chancellor Werner Faymann mentioned that he is likewise personally committed to that goal.
At the meeting, the parties stressed the importance of the economic forum held within the framework of the Armenian President’s official visit to Austria and the arrangements made there.
In Austria, Serzh Sargsyan visited the Mekhitarist Congregation of Vienna, the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, as well as the library and museum of the Congregation. The president also visited Saint Hripsime Armenian Apostolic Church in order to pay tribute to the memory of the Armenian Genocide victims by placing flowers at the monument installed in the yard of the church.
