France will develop cooperation with Armenia in all spheres, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said at a meeting in Paris on Wednesday with his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan.
This was the two leaders' second meeting since Sargsyan took office in April 2008. The first meeting took place in November 2008 when the Armenian leader paid a working visit to France.
"Sarkozy confirmed his country's intention to develop relations with Armenia in all directions and stressed that France was and remains Armenia's friend," the French president's press service said.
"Sarkozy stressed...France's Armenian community is an unbreakable bridge of friendship between the two peoples and countries," it also said.
The two presidents also discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process, regional security, Armenian-Turkish reconciliation and other bilateral issues.
