The new building of Armenia’s Consulate General was unveiled in Saint Petersburg today. Attending the ceremony was Armenia’s acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
The new premises built in 1912 are of historic importance. The building, which covers 320 square meters, has been provided to the Armenian Consulate for 49 years.
The building has been completely renovated on funds provided by the local Armenian community.
The previous building rented in 2000 covered an area of just 100 square meters and had inconvenient working conditions.
Addressing the attendees, Nikol Pashinyan said: “The Armenian people have warm feelings for the Russian Federation and such events further reinforce our relations.”
Pashinyan said he hopes “new Armenia-related offices will open in Russian, and Russian investments will keep growing.”
