Macron, Trudeau Confirm Participation at La Francophonie Summit


YEREVAN (Armenpress) —  The final list of participants of the La Francophonie Summit in Yerevan is not complete yet, Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan told reporters on February 20. Yet, he added, “The  participation of the leaders of two very important Francophone countries – France and Canada – is certain.”

In a January 24 interview with L’Express, Armenia’s President Serzh Sargsyan said that as a result of the summit “we will be able to present Armenia to the whole world. We will do our best for it to have great success. Take into consideration that almost half of the world’s states will be in Yerevan, mainly at the level of heads of state and heads of government,” the president said when asked what significance the summit will have for Armenia.

The summit is scheduled to take place in October in Yerevan.
