Moscow mayor praises cooperation with Armenian capital


YEREVAN, October 7 (RIA Novosti, Gamlet Matevosyan) - Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov said Friday that the program of cooperation between Moscow and the Armenian capital of Yerevan is one of the largest and most successful among similar programs with other Eurasian cities.

"We discussed the implementation of the program with Yerevan Mayor Ervand Zakaryan and concluded that it has been successful so far," Luzhkov said at the opening of the Days of Moscow's Culture in Yerevan. "We have been closely following its progress and we are planning to expand it."
