Pashinyan calls on Russian businessmen to make investments in Armenia

Pashinyan stressed that the protest actions in Armenia were due exclusively to internal problems of the country, and protesters did not make any demands concerning the country's foreign policy.

Relations between Armenia and Russian Federation will be more fraternal, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said at the St. Sarkis Armenian Church in Adler on Sunday evening. "I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to provide whatever support is necessary to our friends in Armenia during this transition and to strengthen the ties between our nations".

In a referendum in 2015, Armenia adopted constitutional changes to move the powers from the president to the prime minister.

"Relations between Yerevan and Moscow will change, but for the better, I am fairly sure of that", he said.

Putin was among the first foreign leaders to congratulate Pashinyan, who had vowed to pursue friendly relations with Russian Federation. "When the time is appropriate, I believe we should extend an invitation to the new Prime Minister, Nikol Pashinyan, to come to the USA and meet with Congress".
