On September 2, Foreign Minister of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan held a phone conversation with the OSCE Secretary General Helga Maria Schmid. Receiving the congratulations of the OSCE Secretary General on assuming the position of the Foreign Minister, Ararat Mirzoyan noted that Armenia values the role of the OSCE as a regional organization based on the comprehensive and cooperative security concept.

Minister Mirzoyan also stressed that the Armenian side is interested in deepening the cooperation within the three security dimensions of the OSCE; politico-military, economic and environmental and human. In this regard, the consistency of the programmatic cooperation with the OSCE and its executive bodies, especially within the framework of the Armenia Cooperation Programme was stressed.

The sides touched upon the situation resulting from the Azerbaijani-Turkish aggression. Ararat Mirzoyan emphasized the importance of resuming the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairmanship.

The Foreign Minister of Armenia also underscored that Armenia is committed to the establishment of lasting peace in the region, but Azerbaijan’s provocative actions, including the infiltration of the Azerbaijani armed forces into the sovereign territory of Armenia, create new hotspots of tensions and undermine regional security and stability.
