Serzh Sargsyan: Armenia's foreign policy is based on mutually beneficial cooperation with global and regional players

  • Thursday, November 29, 19:43

 The ongoing processes in the South Caucasus are complicated and hard to predict. They are at the junction of interests of the regional force centers, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan says in his address to the participants of international conference "Regional Security Dynamics in the South Caucasus" in Yerevan. The address was read out by Chairman of the Political Science Association of Armenia, Doctor of Political Science
Hayk Kotanjian.

"This fact creates challenges for the countries of the region and opens new opportunities. The foreign policy of Armenia is based on mutually beneficial cooperation with global and regional players. We are sure that open borders and implementation of joint economic projects can stimulate establishment of atmosphere of confidence in the region", Sargsyan says in the address.

The address also points out that in order to establish stability in the South Caucasus region it is important to settle the regional conflicts exclusively in the peaceful way on the basis of international legal norms.  "The only acceptable format of the Karabakh conflict settlement for Armenia is the OSCE Minsk Group. I'd like to point out that ensuring physical security of Karabakh people and their right to self-determination is the pledge of long-term peace and stability in the region", the president says in his address. In this context, he adds that it is very important to return Nagorno-Karabakh to the negotiation table. 

He also stresses in his address that Azerbaijan's xenophobia against Armenians and Beku's aggressive statements are escalating the tension in the South Caucasus. "In the current situation, Armenia has to pay special attention to its defensive system as a factor restraining the Azerbaijani aggression and ensuring stability in the South Caucasus", he says. 

Serzh Sargsyan says in his address that unlike Ankara, Yerevan remains committed to its initiative to normalize relations with Turkey.
