PanARMENIAN.Net - Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev will begin a two-day visit to Armenia on Monday, August 12, TASS reports.

The Russian Security Council’s press service earlier revealed that Patrushev will "hold consultations on security issues [in Yerevan] involving the offices of the Security Councils and representatives of a number of government agencies of Russia and Armenia."

The Russian delegation led by Patrushev would visit Yerevan at the invitation of Secretary of Armenia’s Security Council Armen Grigoryan.
