"I have learnt with deep sorrow about the untimely death of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Arman Kirakosyan.
Arman Kirakosyan was one of the best diplomats in Armenia, who while occupying various positions in the central apparatus and diplomatic missions of the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs displayed himself as an experienced, competent, skilled specialist, decent person and true patriot.
He had a substantial contribution to protecting Artsakh's interests, providing accurate information about our republic in various international platforms.
