Francois Hollande: “We welcome Armenia’s European association”

On the invitation of President Serzh Sargsyan, the President of the French Republic Francois Hollande arrived in Armenia on a state visit.

In the opening of Armenian-French economic forum French President Francois Hollande said his country welcomes Armenia’s European association following Vilnius summit.

Hollande believes that during the summit in Vilnius, Armenia showed its will and choice: the republic is determined to get closer to Europe. However, the president noted that a model of association might be found, which will not contradict Armenia’s membership to Customs Union.
