On the margins of his official visit to Moscow, Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan held an off the record meeting with the Russian experts and political scientists at the “Ria news” agency.
During the meeting a number of issues were touched upon related to regional and international developments. The main subject of the discussion was the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone as a result of Azerbaijan’s large-scale aggression with the active involvement of Turkey.
Minister Mnatsakanyan drew the participants' attention to the illegal methods of conducting war by the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan, which are accompanied by gross violations of international law.
During the discussion, the interlocutors have also touched upon the behaviour of non-regional players in the South Caucasus, which are attempting to change the balance and security perceptions in the region. In this context, Minister Mnatsakanyan drew the participants attention to Turkey’s disruptive policy of provoking regional instability by involving foreign terrorist fighters and extremist groups in the hostilities.
