He said he hoped Armenia will help promote cooperation between China and the Eurasian Economic Union, which includes Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia.

Sarkisian said the Armenian and Chinese people have enjoyed a long history of friendship, dating back to the times of the ancient Silk Road.

Hailing the increasing economic cooperation and political trust between the two countries since Armenian independence, Sarkisian expressed his gratitude to China for political support and economic assistance.

As this year is the 70th anniversary of the victory of World War II and China’s victory in the Chinese People’s War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression, Xi said China and Armenia should work together with all people and nations who cherish peace to safeguard international peace and justice.

According to Xi, more than 6,000 Armenian soldiers from the Soviet Red Army joined China’s fight against Japanese invaders.

Sarkisian said China played an important role in safeguarding world peace and that he admired China’s policy of treating all countries, big or small, equally and always developing relations with other countries on the basis of equality and mutual respect.

Armenia looked forward to closer cooperation with China with a view to secure win-win results, Sarkisian said.

Lauding China’s great contribution to World War II, Sarkisian said the Armenian people would work together with the Chinese people to commemorate the victory.
