The Armenian parliament voted on Friday to elect Armen Sarkissian, a former prime minister who has long resided in Britain, Armenia's new and largely ceremonial president.

Dalia Grybauskaitė wished Armen Sarkissian continued success, patience and wisdom in performing the important and responsible duties of the presidential position. In a ceremony held on October 10, 2009, the foreign ministers signed the two protocols, supported by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which required ratification from parliaments of both countries.

Sarkissian served as prime minister of Armenia from November 4, 1996 to March 20, 1997.

Sarkissian's first trip outside of Armenia since being nominated was to Russian Federation, where he met with community representatives and church leaders.

In remarks to parliament yesterday, Sarkissian said Armenian society has become more divided in recent years.

The election also marks a major power shift.

Pres. Trump says 'We have to do something' about guns
He ended the gathering by telling lawmakers that he'd rather see legislation that's too strong than too weak. During Wednesday's meeting, Trump was non-committal on the issue, saying "We could work on that".

Sarkissian, 64, taught physics at Yerevan State University and Cambridge University in the 1970s and 1980s.

Opposition leaders accuse Sarksyan of planning to move into the post of prime minister to continue ruling Armenia. Previously, he had been Armenia's ambassador in London. He was reappointed Ambassador to the United Kingdom in 1998. He served as prime minister in 1996-1997. He has served as Special Advisor to the President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Develop-ment and as a Governor of EBRD from 1993-2000.

Dr. Sarkissian has advised the CEOs and Corporate Boards of large global companies, including BP, Alcatel, Telefonica, Finmeccanica, Bekaerd, and others.
