Greeting the guest, President Sargsyan said the Armenian-Belarusian scientific ties have a serious history.

The parties exchanged views on the opportunities of development of science in the two countries, noting that the agreement signed between the Academies of Sciences of Armenia and Belarus opens new perspectives for cooperation between the scientific circles of the two countries.
