Singapore and Armenia sign MOU

Singapore and Armenia have signed an agreement on cultural cooperation aimed at fostering greater intercultural understanding between the two countries. 

The signing ceremony was witnessed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, who's here for a three-day state visit. 

The memorandum of understanding would allow both countries to explore possibilities of partnership between artists and experts in co-productions, presentations, research trips and new commissions. 

Mr Sargsyan began his day early at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, where an orchid was named after him. 

He then made a courtesy call on President Tony Tan Keng Yam at the Istana... before he met Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. 

In the evening, President Tan hosted Mr Sargsyan to a state banquet.
