Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia to lead Armenian delegation at inauguration of new Ukrainian President

Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Armen Gevorgyan will lead the Armenian delegation at the inauguration of new Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, reports the Embassy of Ukraine in Armenia.

Earlier it was reported that the delegation would be led by Economy Minister Karen Tchshmarityan. But today it was decided to replace Tchshmarityan with Gevorgyan. As regards the Economy Minister he may soon be appointed as Co-Chair of the Armenian-Ukrainian Intergovernmental Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation.

During last year's inauguration of Armenia's President Serzh Sargsyan the Ukrainian delegation was led by Deputy Foreign Minister.

A few days ago Ambassador of Ukraine in Armenia Ivan Kukhta came back to Armenia. He was called back to Kyiv after Armenia's decision to support Crimea's referendum to secede from Ukraine.

Meanwhile, RBC quotes Head of Information Policy Department of Ukraine's Foreign Ministry Yevgeny Perebiynis as saying that the Ministry decided to send Kuhta back to Armenia when the Armenian authorities congratulated Petro Poroshenko on his victory in the election. "Armenia welcomed Poroshenko's victory and expressed hope for constructive cooperation with Ukraine," Perebiynis said.  Poroshenko's inauguration is scheduled for June 7, with almost 20 foreign presidents and prime ministers having already confirmed their intention to attend the ceremony.

Poroshenko won the election on May 25 with 54.7% of the votes.
