As REGNUM is told at the Armenian government press office, Mikhail Fradkov noted in his letter that the newly appointed Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan is a proponent of further development of the Armenian-Russian relations. “We hope that your effective activity aimed at development of the Russian-Armenian relations will be continued on the post of the Armenian prime minister,” the letter says.
