We will continue to be a reliable partner in your efforts to achieve these goals”, Biden said.

We hope that our progress in this direction with the support of Georgia will be an important basis for further regional cooperation, in supplement to the discussions initiated by the Minsk Group Co-Chairs’’, Biden said in his congratulatory message.

He added that the United States is ready to strengthen cooperation with Armenia based on common democratic values and institutions. “I look forward to working with you and your new Cabinet, to deepen and expand our bilateral relations’’, the U.S. President said.
