YEREVAN, December 8. /ARKA/. On Thursday, Armenian National Assembly ratified a €6.5-million loan agreement with European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

This money is intended for rehabilitation of water infrastructures in Armenia’s provinces.

“The agreement has been signed as part of a €20-million program,” Andranik Anreasyan, head of the state water committee affiliated to the territorial administration ministry, said at that parliamentary session. “Of this amount, €7 million was provided by European Union as grant, and another €6.5 million will be transferred by European Investment Bank soon.”
