The journalists covering the meeting between Armenian and Russian Presidents Serzh Sargsyan and Dmitry Medvedev became unwilling witnesses to an interesting detail.
As journalists were taking pictures of the Presidents for the protocol, Dmitry Medvedev sat at the Armenian national flag, while his Armenian counterpart at the Russian one.
As the journalists noted it, the Russian leader said: “It shows the strategic nature of our relations.”
The Armenian and Russian Presidents did not make any statements before the talks. “Our deeds rather than our words are of importance,” President Medvedev said. The two leaders continued private talks.
The Armenian and Russian leaders plan to discuss the strengthening of bilateral trade, economic, investment, fuel and energy cooperation, as well as security and stability in the South Caucasus.
