Armenian Foreign Minister Says India Can Bring Peace to South Caucasus
Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan, during a joint press conference today in Yerevan with visiting Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, said that India is one of Armenia’s “most important partners” and that Yerevan seeks to deepen cooperation with New Delhi.
“Next year marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of our diplomatic relations. It is a jubilee, and we must take steps together to boost our relations in the political, economic, defense and cultural spheres to a new level,” Mirzoyan said according to a statement released by his office.
This is the first visit of an Indian Foreign Minister to the Republic of Armenia.
“India, as the world's largest democracy, a large, fast-growing economy, as well as a peace-loving state, can contribute to stability, development and peace in the South Caucasus. We appreciate India's principled position and continued support for a peaceful and comprehensive settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs mandate.” Mirzoyan said.
