Statement by Edward Nalbandian, Minister of Foreign affairs of Armenia at the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament

Inter-parliamentary cooperation has been an indispensable and integral part of the political dialogue between Armenia and the European Union.

Statement by Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece

25 years ago the diplomatic relations were established between the newly independent Republic of Armenia and the Hellenic Republic. The regular high level visits gave new impetus to our partnership and outline the main areas of cooperation.

Statement by Edward Nalbandian Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia at the 24th Meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council

The consequences of the closure of the OSCE Office in Yerevan pertain to very essence of the OSCE, which is designed to settle the issues through dialogue and cooperation and never through imposing the position of one participating State at the expense of all others and the entire Organization. It created a very negative precedent. The refusal of Azerbaijan to join the consensus on the extension of the mandate of the Office damaged not merely the integrity of the field missions of the OSCE, but its capacity of inclusive cooperation. Azerbaijan failed to respect the OSCE commitments and eliminated the OSCE Office in its own country before it attacked and closed the last OSCE full-fledged mission in the region. It is particularly deplorable that the Office was closed against the will and consistent efforts for its preservation exerted by the host country and all participating States with one exception - Azerbaijan. We would like to recall that both German and Austrian Chairmanships rejec more ...
