Duma Rep. Vows More Assistance to Armenia

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The cooperation level between Russia and Armenia is rather high–deputy chairman of the Russian State Duma’s committee for CIS Affairs and Fellow Countrymen–secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Russia Nikolay Bindiukov said at a March 20 news conference.

During his three-day visit to Armenia Bindiukov visited Giumri where he met with the locals–the Russian military base there–as well as "ArmUralSibstroy"–the only Russian enterprise which continues to implement construction work in the disaster zone. Bindiukov also met with chairman of the National Assembly of Armenia Khosrov Haroutiunian.

Nikolay Bindiukov said he was satisfied with his visit to Armenia–adding that upon his return to Russia he would report to the government and State Duma the necessity of increasing assistance to Armenia.
