Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan will be visiting Switzerland on January 22 to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, press department at the Government reported.

He said the overt racism of Trump's statements were self-evident and that the American president had "cast a pall" over the symbiotic relationship between Africa and the USA "by impugning the dignity of 1.2 billion Africans". Trevor Manuel will also be in Davos again, but this time with a private sector hat.

The first research paper, New Concept for Europe, is the result of a six-month consultation with leaders from business, government, academia and civil society and young people.

Narendra Modi will be the first Indian prime minister to attend the Economic Forum in 21 years.

Trump said last week that he "canceled" a visit to London to formally open the new US embassy because the old site had been sold for "peanuts" and the new building, in an "off location", was a "bad deal". A visit was expected to attract mass protests. "Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!", Trump tweeted.

London mayor Sadiq Khan said Trump had "got the message" from Londoners who considered his policies and actions to be the polar opposite of their city's values of "inclusion, diversity and tolerance".

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson claimed the cancellation was because Mr Trump knew Mrs May was busy with Brexit.

Announcing schedule of its various leaders, the Swiss government said Berset will also meet US President Donald Trump, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the British Prime Minister Theresa May, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among other leaders.
