President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian has arrived in Germany on February 14th ahead of the Munich Security Conference.

The first stop of the visit was Heidelberg, a town in Baden-Württemberg in south-west of the country. Here, the president had a meeting with Mayor Prof. Eckart Würzner.

During the meeting the sides talked about the great potential for cooperation in the academic field.

Mayor Würzner noted that Heidelberg is one of Germany’s fastest growing towns. He emphasized that the town has huge potential in science, especially in medicine. “We hope we’ll be able to cooperate in this and other sectors in the future,” the mayor told the Armenian president.

President Sarkissian thanked the mayor for the warm reception. “The development of this town is wonderful, it is a combination of science, academics and new technologies. Therefore I am glad to be here,” Sarkissian said. He also talked about a desire of transforming the town of Dilijan in Armenia into a leading center of IT and artificial intelligence. Sarkissian also invited the Mayor of Heidelberg to visit Armenia to share his experience in city governance.

Later, the Armenian president will visit the Heidelberg University, Germany’s oldest higher education institution.
