"We noted progress in the execution of the agreements between the heads of states (Russia and Armenia) regarding the consideration of the possibilities of Armenia's cooperation with the CU and CES. We appreciate the work of the joint Russian-Armenian commission established for this purpose, which was formed to weigh relevant issues," Lavrov said.
