Hockey Welcomes Visiting Armenian Delegates

Joe Hockey, Member for North Sydney, today welcomed the Chairman, Ministers, Members and delegates of the Armenian National Assembly to Australia.

"My electorate of North Sydney boasts one of the largest Armenian communities in Australia, a fact of which I am very proud.

"This large community coupled with my personal connection to Armenian, makes me honoured to welcome representatives from the Armenian Parliament to our great country.

"One of the main purposes of the delegates' visit to Australia is to observe our democratic process and to promote a positive relationship between the two parliaments.

"I sincerely hope this is the beginning of a warm and constructive relationship between our respective parliaments and I extend a friendly welcome to the delegates of the Armenian National Assembly," Mr Hockey said.
