The President of the Armenian National Assembly Hovik Abrahamyan arrived in Cyprus today for an official visit, aiming at deepening ties between the Parliaments of the two countries.

On arrival at Larnaca International Airport, Abrahamyan spoke of the outstanding relations between the two countries in various fields and said that he ''feels like home.''

''With this visit we will do our utmost to improve and expand our cooperation,'' he said, speaking through an interpreter, pointing out that the President of Armenia will pay an official visit to Cyprus this coming January.

Welcoming Abrahamyan, House President Marios Garoyian of Armenian origin, described his Armenian counterpart as ''a very good friend of Cyprus,'' who ''believes in and promotes the relations between Cyprus and Armenia as well as the relations between the Armenian and the Cypriot Parliaments.''

''We will have the opportunity to exchange thoughts, views and ideas for the expansion, strengthening and the greater promotion of relations between the two Parliaments, as well as to strengthen the broader effort to boost even further the excellent ties between the two countries, our peoples and the Parliaments,'' he added.

During his visit in Cyprus, Abrahamyan will meet President Demetris Christofias and hold a meeting with Garoyian. He will also attend the plenary session of the House of Representatives.
