Meeting with representatives of the Argentine mass media

26 March, 2024

During the official visit to Argentina, Foreign Minister of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan had a meeting with representatives of leading local media.

The topics of discussion included the bilateral relations between Armenia and Argentina, the existing historical ties between the two countries, and the bilateral efforts aimed at further enriching the partnership agenda. The readiness to develop economic ties equivalent to the existing high-level political dialogue was emphasized. In this context, the Minister presented the discussions held the day before with his Argentine counterpart, informing about the invitation to a mutual visit.

The various directions of Armenia’s foreign policy, its current priorities, as well as the security situation in the South Caucasus, existing challenges, and efforts made to overcome them were thoroughly presented by Minister Mirzoyan.

Presenting the key issues in the normalization process of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan and Armenia's positions on them, Minister Mirzoyan stressed that demonstrating mutual commitment should be the imperative of the day to achieve sustainable progress. Armenia has such a commitment, but Azerbaijan’s actions do not indicate adequate reciprocity. “We continue negotiations to reach mutual agreement on key issues, and the clear positions of our international partners and support for basic principles are also very important on this path,” the Minister noted.

Ararat Mirzoyan thoroughly presented the “Crossroads of Peace” project developed by the Government of the Republic of Armenia, which takes into account changes in both global and regional logistic routes. Minister Mirzoyan stressed Armenia’s unequivocal interest in unblocking regional communications and highlighted the four fundamental principles that should underpin this process.

The Foreign Minister of Armenia answered a number of questions from journalists, including regarding the consequences of the ethnic cleansing carried out by Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh.
