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.
