On June 8, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of France to Armenia H.E. Mr. Jean-François Charpentier visited Russian-Armenian University within the series of Ambassador Talks - public lectures by the representatives of diplomatic missions and international delegations in Armenia. 
 
Head of RAU Department of World Politics and International Relations, holder of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary diplomatic rank, Mr. Arman Navasardyan greeted the guest and highlighted that this is a unique opportunity to listen to the Ambassador France and suggested, as the French say, to enjoy the lecture. 
 
H.E. Mr. Jean-François Charpentier gave a lecture for RAU students and academics. During his speech, the Ambassador outlined the fundamental principles of diplomacy and foreign policy in France, which included strengthening the EU, promotion of cultural diversity and environmental protection among other things.
 
The speaker highlighted the importance of promoting cultural diversity as a core mission of the International Organization of La Francophonie. The organization aims to protect diversity in all its forms, as well as to support economic and social development of its 58 member states. The Ambassador pointed out the effective cooperation existing between Armenia and the organization: Armenia has been an associate member of La Francophonie since 2008, while fully joining the organization in 2012. Also, Armenia will be hosting the 17th Summit of Francophone countries in 2018, the most significant event for the International Organization of La Francophonie.
 
Ms. Larisa Alaverdyan, Head of the Institute of Law and Politics at Russian-Armenian University, the first Ombudsman of Armenia, expressed her gratitude to the Ambassador for his visit and commented on the relations between France and Armenia, “For France, showing interest in Armenia has long historical roots. And we, Armenians, in our turn genuinely share your ups and downs. This goes for not only state relations but also deep human level”.  
 
H.E. Mr. Charpentier concluded with an acknowledgement that France is interested in maintaining the bilateral relations with Armenia on the highest level.
