Today, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with the Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, on the margins of the Eighteenth Summit of La Francophonie.

Prime Minister Trudeau welcomed the continued ceasefire following the escalation of hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan in September, and expressed his support for ongoing meaningful dialogue between the two countries.
