Armenia stresses

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan met with his Greek counterpart Nikos Dendias on Monday, June 27 and stressed the key role of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmanship in promoting the peace process for the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

"Armenia appreciates the position of Greece in support of the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict under the mandate and within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmanship," Mirzoyan said in a statement for the press.

"I presented to my colleague in detail the situation created around the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the position of Armenia on the processes aimed at establishing regional peace and stability, the negotiations on the normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

"I also touched upon issues related to the processes of the unblocking of the regional economic communications and transport infrastructure, the works within the Commission of delimitation and border security and overall the process on peace agreement."

The Second Karabakh war lasted 44 days and ended when Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev signed a ceasefire statement on November 9, 2020. Under the deal, the Armenian side returned all the seven regions surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
