New Zealand appoints first Ambassador to Armenia

The newly appointed Ambassador of New Zealand to Armenia Hamish Cooper (seat in Moscow) presented the copies of his credentials to Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Manasaryan.

The Armenian Deputy FM congratulated the Ambassador on appointment and voiced hope that as the first Ambassador of New Zealand to Armenia he would contribute to the development and reinforcement of relations between the two countries.

Ambassador Cooper noted, in turn, that he would spare no effort for the development of bilateral relations and cooperation. The Ambassador stressed the importance to Minister Nalbandian’s visit to New Zealand last year and the agreements reached within that framework.

During the meeting reference was made to the cooperation between the two countries within the framework of international organizations, the development of trade-economic relations and expansion of the legal framework.

The interlocutors attached importance to the role of the Armenian community of New Zealand as an important link between the two countries.

The Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister briefed Ambassador Cooper on the steps of Armenia and the international community towards the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and hailed New Zealand’s balanced stance on the issue.
