YEREVAN, APRIL 7, ARMENPRESS. Russian President Vladimir Putin assured in a meeting with Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan that the trade turnover volumes that have declined because of the coronavirus pandemic will be restored.

You actively support the activities of that commission and the Russian Deputy PM periodically visits Yerevan”, ARMENPRESS reports Putin as saying.
The Russian President also referred to the issues of opening trade-economic and transport communications in the post-war period, as a result of which, according to Putin, Armenia will get new development opportunities.
