    YEREVAN, MARCH 10. (RIA NOVOSTI CORRESPONDENT HAMLET MATEVOSYAN) -A protocol on the continued validity of an inter-government agreement between Armenia and the Russian federation, "On regulating voluntary migration processes", of August 29, 1997 was signed in Yerevan by Minister for Territorial Government and Infrastructure Coordination Ovik Abraamyan and Russia's ambassador Anatoly Dryukov in Armenia.

    Under the protocol, the sides have agreed to extend the agreement for another five years, reports the Armenian government public and press liaison department. The agreement is targeted at creating favourable conditions for the voluntary migration of Armenian and Russian citizens, said Gagik Yeganyan, chief of the Armenian government department for migration and refugees.

    It is especially important now, with a notable stream of repatriates, added Yeganyan.

    On instructions from the Armenian government, he continued, a delegation will go to Russia next week to enlighten Armenian citizens living in Russia on the essence of the inter-government agreement.
