"It was also extremely useful in terms of strengthening the existing dialogue with the Government of Armenia. Details of democratic processes taking place in my country, national reform agenda, Armenia-OSCE wide range of cooperation, as well as issues pertaining to regional peace and stability, including those related to the peaceful resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict within the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs format were discussed.
