Statement by Edward Nalbandian at the solemn ceremony on the occasion of assuming the Presidency of the Foreign Ministers Conference of La Francophonie

26.11.2017

Dear Mme Secretary General,
Dear Colleagues,

At this moment, when Armenia is assuming the Presidency of the Ministerial Conference of La Francophonie, I feel proud for this honour bestowed upon Armenia.

Once again, I would like to express deep gratitude to the heads of states and governments of La Francophonie for trusting our country to hold the XVII Summit of La Francophonie.

Dear Mme Secretary General,
Dear Colleagues,

We are aware of the immense work that awaits us. First of all, it is necessary to ensure the success of the Summit, in organisational terms. In this regard, we look forward to working closely with the Madagascar Presidency, with you, Mme Secretary General, as well as with member states and governments of La Francophonie.

I would like to warmly thank my colleague from Madagascar. From now on, Armenia and Madagascar are connected by both historical and symbolic ties.

Dear Colleague,

You assumed the Presidency of the Ministerial Conference of La Francophonie in Armenia and now you are transferring that Presidency to Armenia, not to mention that it was in Antananarivo that a decision was made to hold the next Summit of La Francophonie in Yerevan.

We also intend work in a joint and constant manner with Tunisia, to which Armenia will pass the honour and privilege of organizing the next Summit of our Organization.

Dear Mme. Secretary General,
Dear Colleagues,

This is how we perceive the cooperation within our francophone family. We intend to work jointly with you and everyone to ensure the success of the Summit in Yerevan, as the success of this Summit is the collective success of all of us, the overall success of our francophone family.

Thank you.
Thus, I declare the 34th Ministerial Conference of La Francophonie closed.’
