Hi friends. Does it sound idiomatic to say "...Armenia-US relations and the opportunities for their reinforcement..."? Otherwise, can I say "...the opportunities to reinforce them..."?
"The interlocutors touched upon dynamically developing Armenia-U.S. relations, the opportunities for their reinforcement and enhancement and upon a number of other issues."

    I would use "them" there. If you use "their" it might seem to refer back to the people talking.

    I would also look at your repetition of AND in that sentence. You might be able to rephrase to avoid that. Maybe reverse the order: "they looked at a number of issues including developing and reinforcing Armenian-US relations" ?

    I love it when people say "with all due respect"! It nearly always means "you are talking $%*# . ;)

    I can take it! Yes, I know it is not an obvious thought, but in convoluted stuff like this, with convoluted context I think my idea has validity.
