EU shares Armenia's approaches to regional problems

PanARMENIAN.Net - The South Caucasus, a region eyed by outer forces as a unity, is being torn apart by internal confrontations, the Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister said.

"Inability to properly analyze the August war can provoke a new armed conflict," Arman Kirakossian said during 'European Union and South Caucasus - A Security Partnership?' international conference in Yerevan today.

"Armenia is sincerely interested in regional cooperation. This is our response to the other states of the region which do not give up attempts to isolate us from economic projects."

The European Union shares Armenia's approaches to regional problems, according to him.

"We welcome new ENP regional initiatives which can bring peace and stability to the South Caucasus. However, progress is impossible without resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict," Mr. Kirakossian said.
