Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United Kingdom, Simon Fraser, today held three meetings in Yerevan before his meeting with journalists.
"I have had interesting discussions with Armenian President, Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, and I am pleased with the outcome of the meetings," said the UK official.
During the meetings, the interlocutors discussed the perspectives of developing bilateral relations, Armenia's relations with the European Union, as well as regional issues, including the peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict. The diplomat stressed that they support all processes that take place within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group.
"We support the progress of the Republic of Armenia, as well as development of open political and social processes. We support Armenia's aspirations to come closer to the European Union," said Mr Fraser.
Speaking about the February 18 presidential election in Armenia, the UK official said his country recognizes the election outcome. However, he refrained from speaking on the post-election developments, specifically the protests outside different embassies, saying he was unaware of them.
