France, Russia and the United States definitely take a priority position in the foreign policy of Armenia. French-Armenian relationships have a privileged character, Russian-Armenian relations have elevated to the level of allied partnership. To clarify the structure of relations between the countries the author resorts to the method of applied analysis: the study of voting in the United Nations General Assembly. The author analyzes the voting of Armenia in the UN General Assembly, and the Armenian position is compared with the voting of France, USA and Russia on various foreign policy issues. The comparison of positions helps to detect adherent points of foreign policy, to talk about the impact on the country’s foreign policy and to assess the degree of independence in the foreign policy of the Armenian leadership. Statistical analysis of voting is supplemented by qualitative analysis of resolutions of the UN GA. These issues are one of the most urgent on the international agenda. Countries that have relation to the resolutions are in the vicinity of Armenia; therefore, for every resolution Armenia has a clearly defined position.
