India, Armenia ink pact for agri-cooperation

India and Armenia signed an agreement for cooperation in the agriculture sector.


In this regard, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh and Armenian Agriculture Minister Sergo Karapetyan here, which provides for setting up of a Joint Working Group (JWG) and preparation of work plans in priority areas of farm sector.


"The two ministers further identified cooperatives, cattle identification, agriculture machinery, plant breeding and exchange of agri-scientist and students -- as priority areas and resolved to constitute the JWG at the earliest to take the agreement forward," an official release said.


They also emphasised on furthering relationships not only for catalysing trade and investment prospects but also sharing the knowledge that the two countries have accumulated over the years, it said.


The Armenian minister also reiterated its country's support for India's claim to a permanent seat in UN Security Council, the statement added.

The agreement is valid for five years and extendable beyond five years.
