Armen Sargsyan (Armenian: Արմեն Սարգսյան;[note 1] born June 23, 1953, Yerevan, Armenian SSR) was the Prime Minister of Armenia from November 4, 1996 to March 20, 1997. Previously, he had been Armenia's ambassador in London, having been a faculty member at the University of Cambridge when Armenia became the first country to gain independence from the former Soviet Union.

He is now one of the directors of Eurasia House.[1] He is also a member of the Global Leadership Foundation, an organization which works to promote good governance around the world.[2]


  1. ^ As director of Eurasia House, he uses the spelling Armen Sarkissian, which is the French transcription of his name in Russian (Армен Саркисян). On former Soviet passports, the Russian names were usually transcribed to Latin alphabet using a French transcription system since French was the language used on it as the diplomatic language.
