YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 11, ARMENPRESS. President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian and King Abdullah II of Jordan discussed issues relating to the cooperation potential of the two countries in different areas during their meeting in Yerevan.

“We had wonderful discussions with His Majesty today and yesterday. We discussed the cooperation potential of our countries in the fields of tourism, education, science, technologies, security and agriculture”, the Armenian President said following the meeting with the King of Jordan at the Presidential Palace.

President Sarkissian said the visit of the King of Jordan to Armenia is historic. “I think this is a historical visit not only in a sense that His Majesty is visiting Armenia for the first time, but also in a sense that the friendship of the two countries, peoples has a history of hundreds of years, or perhaps, millennia. This is a good opportunity for me to express my gratitude as an Armenian to your people and family because we all remember that 100 years ago your great grandfather has sent a message to the Arab world asking to provide shelter to those Armenians who survived the Genocide. I want to bow my head before your family and your ancestors and also want to thank you on behalf of our people”, the Armenian President said.

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 11, ARMENPRESS. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan hosted King Abdullah II of Jordan at the government on February 11, the PM’s Office told Armenpress.

King Abdullah II of Jordan arrived in Armenia on an official visit.

Welcoming the guest, the Armenian PM said: “Your Majesty, it’s a great honor for me to have you in our country. This is a historical visit, your first visit to Armenia. We hope to see you in our country again and again.

Our relations with Jordan are very important for us because Middle East in general and your country we see as a direction of strategic partnership. I am very glad that the relations between our countries are being intensified. We already have concrete results and specific directions of mutual interest. And I am also happy that economic delegation came with you, and we are going to sign a concrete document to make even better and even effective our relations.

I am very glad to see you one more time and to have this opportunity. I would like to stress that our people have very positive historical memory about your country because your country and people supported greatly the survivors of the Armenian Genocide, and this fact makes our approach to Jordan and Jordanian people warmer, and it is really very strong ground for our relations, and I hope that on that ground we will be able to create really impressive relations. Thank you very much”.

In his turn King Abdullah II said: “Your Excellency, thank you very much. As you said, I think we are very proud of the history that our peoples share. I have been welcomed so warmly since my arrival to Armenia yesterday, and as you said, I hope that is one of my many many visits. Our special friendship continues for many years and I hope it will continue with warmth. We still have a lot of work to do. I am very optimistic and impressed with your hospitality”.  

At the meeting the sides discussed a number of issues relating to the development of the Armenian-Jordanian economic and humanitarian relations.

PM Pashinyan said currently Armenia’s economy has good development trends and the country has created a favorable economic climate. He said the Armenian government is interested in attracting the Jordanian business and capital as there are good cooperation prospects in different branches of the economy. Pashinyan added that Armenia can become a good platform for Jordanian businessmen to enter into the market of the Eurasian Economic Union with privileged terms.

Derian, a cozy Syrian-Armenian restaurant in downtown Yerevan, had very special patrons on February 10.

President Armen Sarkissian and King Abdullah II of Jordan were dining there on the first day of the historic, first ever visit of His Majesty to Armenia.

ARMENPRESS’s Norayr Shoghikyan talked to the restaurateur Hakob Azelyan, the Syrian-Armenian owner of Derian, to find out how it felt like hosting the royal, and of course what was on the menu.

“We were informed that the President will be hosting a guest at our restaurant, but we didn’t know who that guest would be due to security reasons, it was kept secret,” Azelyan said.

Azelyan and his wife Mirey are running the restaurant together as a family business, and on that special day all members of the family were working.

“We were anxious in the beginning, but King Abdullah II accepted us very easily. President Armen Sarkissian introduced us to the king, he told him that we came from Syria, we shook hands with the king, and when a warm atmosphere settled our anxiousness subsided,” said Mirey.

Asked about the menu, Hakob Azelyan said there was nothing extraordinary. The dinner comprised Armenian and Arabic cuisine.

“We served our entire menu. There was nothing unusual. The menu consisted of veal and chicken barbeque, ghaurma, ishli kofta, manti, Armenian cheeses, strained matsoon, olives, tabbouleh, dolma, hummus and muttabal. We served caramel cake, a fruit assortment and Arabic kanafeh for dessert,” he said.

Mirey Hamalyan said King Abdullah II liked the food very much and thanked the staff for the hospitality and the delicious meals.

The owners of Derian are proud of their high-profile guests, which also include celebrities Elton John and Michael Caine, as well as government officials.

However, as true restaurateurs, they don’t put a difference between their guests when serving them.
