PARIS — On 20 May Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakian visited the French Senate and met a group of Senators.

The President briefed the Senators on the state-building process in Artsakh, its domestic and foreign policy, the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict settlement process, regional trends and responded to questions.

The President underlined that official Stepanakert attaches importance to the development of bilateral relations with France, a friendly country and one of the cradles of democracy, a country which became a second homeland for hundreds of thousands of Armenians, who escaped their historic land following the Armenian Genocide.

The President rated high the role of France in the Karabakh conflict settlement process and in maintaining peace and stability in the region.

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia to France Vigen Chitechian was present at the meeting.

Also on 20 May the President Sahakian visited the town of Sarcelles and met there with the town authorities headed by Mayor François Pupponi.

A cooperation agreement between the Sarcelles and Martakert towns was signed during the meeting.
President Sahakian stressed that cooperation with various French towns and cities was of special importance for Artsakh, considering it a significant opportunity for urban development in our republic and deepening the Karabakh-­France relationships.
