Mnatsakanyan: Armenia has two main security challenges - the  unresolved Karabakh conflict and the threat posed by Turkey

ArmInfo. The foreign policy  of Armenia is built very consistently with the strengthening of the  national security architecture. Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab  Mnatsakanyan stated this on November 6 during a lecture at the  Stockholm Institute of International Relations on the topic  "Conversation with the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Ukraine".

In this context, he noted that Armenia has two main security  challenges - the unresolved Nagorno- Karabakh conflict and the threat  posed by Turkey. "The lack of relations with Turkey, the continued  denial of justice by Ankara, the rejection of the Zurich protocols,  in addition to a number of other factors, pose a serious threat to  Armenia," Mnatsakanyan emphasized.

In addition to foreign policy priorities, the head of the Armenian  Foreign Ministry also spoke about domestic political events in  Armenia and ongoing democratic reforms. Mnatsakanyan noted that the  Armenian government is conducting large-scale reforms based on a  broad mandate received from the people, and they cover areas such as  the rule of law, strengthening democratic institutions, human rights,  and the fight against corruption. At the same time, he emphasized  that the authorities of the country have enough political will to  successfully achieve their goals.
