[A brief history] From the 9th century BC to the 6th century BC, the Urudu state of slavery was established in Armenia. From the 6th century BC to the 3rd century AD, the Akaiminid dynasty and the Seymour dynasty ruled Armenia and established the Great Armenian country. Since then, Asia has been divided twice by Turkey and Iran. From 1804 to 1828, two Russian-Iranian wars ended in Iran’s defeat, and the former Iranian-occupied East Asia and Merino was incorporated into Russia. On May 28, 1918, the Dashnak Chuqiong Party led the establishment of the First Republic of Armenia. On January 29, 1920, the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic was established. In March 1922, Ya joined the Soviet Socialist Federal Republic of the Transcaucasia and joined the Soviet Union as a member of the federal government on December 30 of the same year. On December 5, 1936, the Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic was replaced by the Soviet Union and became one of its affiliated republics. On August 23, 1990, the Armenian Supreme Soviet adopted the Declaration of Independence and changed its name to the Republic of Armenia. On September 21, 1991, Armenia held a referendum and officially declared independence.

[Political] In April 2018, Armenia changed its parliamentary system. The Republican chairman and outgoing President Serzh Sargsyan (Cерж Cаргсян) was transferred to the prime minister, which triggered a strong protest from the opposition and was forced to resign seven days later. On May 8, the Asian Parliament held a new prime ministerial election, and protest leader Pashnyan was elected as the only candidate. Pai immediately appointed a new government member and was approved by the president. On June 7, the Asian Parliament reviewed and approved the new government policy agenda. The new regime will promote sustained economic development, combat corruption, improve people’s livelihood and social security, strengthen military construction, and prepare for early elections in the parliament. In order to promote the early election of the parliament, Pa announced his resignation on October 16 and temporarily assumed the post of acting prime minister.

On the same day, President Ya signed a decree to approve the candidate nominated by the “My Action” Alliance and Acting Prime Minister Pashnyan as the new Prime Minister.
[Economy] After the independence of Asia, the economy was weakened by the foundation and the “Naga” war and Azerbaijan and Turkey’s blockade have affected the decline. In 2001, it began to rebound. By 2007, GDP continued to maintain double-digit growth, and the standard of living of the people has improved. In the fourth quarter of 2008, affected by the international financial crisis, economic growth slowed down. Since 2009, the Asian government has taken measures such as adjusting the industrial structure, expanding domestic demand, accelerating infrastructure construction, and vigorously supporting agriculture, and has worked hard to eliminate the consequences of the financial crisis. In 2016, the gross domestic product was US$10.5 billion, an increase of approximately 0.2% year-on-year. In 2017, the total value of Asian GDP was US$11.6 billion, up 7.5% year-on-year, and the foreign trade volume was US$6.426 billion, up 26.9% year-on-year.

Efforts to consolidate the strategic alliance with Russia, officially joined the Russian-led Eurasian Economic Union in January 2015; actively develop relations with the United States and the European Union, participate in various activities within the framework of NATO’s “Peace Partnership”, and seek diversification of security policies. In November 2017, Asia and the European Union signed the “Comprehensive Partnership Agreement”. Asia and its neighbor, Azerbaijan, have long been hostile because of the “Naka” territorial dispute. In April 2016, a large-scale armed conflict broke out between the two countries in the “Naka” area, causing a large number of casualties. In February, May and July 2017, Asian and Arab countries broke out in several armed conflicts near the ceasefire line, causing several soldiers and civilian casualties. In May 2018, Prime Minister Pashnyan of the Asian Times visited the Naka area. Asia and neighboring Turkey have not yet established diplomatic ties due to the issue of “genocide”. Asia asked for the recognition of the “genocide” imposed on the Asians by the Ottoman Turkish Empire from 1915 to 1923. Asia actively strengthened good-neighborly and friendly relations of cooperation with Georgia and Iran, deepened ties with countries in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and actively participated in multilateral organizations such as the Commonwealth of Independent States, the OSCE, and the European Commission.
