RA Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan received Head of Russias Federal Agency for Culture and Cinematography Mikhail Shvydkoy.

Greeting the guest, the Prime Minister noted that culture provides an important basis for integration between peoples in different spheres.

The head of Russia's Federal Agency for Culture and Cinematography accepted the invitation and expressed readiness to provide the necessary support.

During the meeting, the two sides said it was important for Armenia to ensure high-level organization for the following cultural events in 2008: "International Humanitarian Festival of Radio Broadcasts in Russian Language," a conference involving the CIS and Baltic States referred to as "Translation: a Gravity Field for Cultures," as well as the publication of an anthology of writers from CIS countries.
