Russia and Armenia may abandon the dollar in mutual settlements

Lavrov called for trade with Armenia to be calculated in other currencies than in dollars.

It is better to "calculate the trade turnover between Russia and Armenia in other currencies" rather than in dollars. This was stated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a press conference on April 8 following talks with Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan.

"Last year, the trade turnover exceeded $ 2.6 billion. Maybe we should calculate in other currencies, we will negotiate later", Lavrov said.
