TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas adjutant general and top officials with the Armenian Ministry of Defense say a 10-year relationship between the state and the former Soviet republic has yielded benefits for both groups.

Delegations from Kansas and Armenia have worked since 2003 to forge ties within their military, government, business and legal communities.

Sergey (SIR-gay) Abrahamyan, (Aah-bruh-MY-ahn) a defense ministry official from Armenia, says Wednesday his central Asian country has learned a lot from Kansas that it is using in its new democracy. His visit this week was a follow up to a recent delegation visit to view the American legal system.

Previous Kansas delegations to Armenia have helped establish a noncommissioned officer program in the military and emergency medical services.
