Serge Sarkissian to Visit US Sunday

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Armenia’s defense minister Serge Sarkissian is scheduled to arrive in Washington Sunday–for a series of talks with US Secretary of Defense William Cohen.

During the meeting with Cohen–scheduled for Monday–bi-lateral cooperation between Armenia and the US on the military realm will be discussed–after a proper evaluation of the current status of those ties.

This meeting will end with the signing of an agreement on cooperation in proliferating weapons of mass destruction.

The defense ministry press service reported that Sarkissian is also scheduled to meet high-level officials in the State Department and discuss with them the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process–as well as issues of regional security and stability.

Sarkissian will also be the guest of the Armenian Assembly of America and will have the opportunity to meet with the Armenian-American community in the area before returning to Yerevan Wednesday.
