Armenian Foreign Minister on Azerbaijani aggression: Inadequate,  equating responses to the aggressor and the target of aggression lead  to new crimes

ArmInfo.Armenia stresses importance to the targeted and adequate response of the international community to the maximalist and criminal aspirations of Azerbaijan  against peace and stability in the region. Armenian Foreign Minister  Ararat Mirzoyan stated this on September 27 in Yerevan during a  briefing with his Greek counterpart  Nikos Dendias.

Thus, as the press service of the RA MFA reports, the statement for  press of the Foreign Minister of Armenia following the meeting with  the Foreign Minister of Greece Nikos Dendias reads, in part:

"Mr. Minister, honorable Nikos, dear friend,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Just a few days ago, we had an important meeting in New York within  the Armenia-Greece- Cyprus trilateral format, and today I am  delighted to host my good friend and colleague Nikos Dendias and his  delegation in Yerevan.

Allow me, Mr. Dendias, to express my gratitude to Greece and the  Government of Greece for the consistent support to Armenia and the  Armenian people, especially when we are encountering the Azerbaijani  aggression against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of  Armenia. Your visit to Armenia during the difficult days of the  44-day war in the fall of 2020, as well as your presence in Yerevan  today, are the demonstration of solidarity and support we greatly  appreciate.

Dear colleagues,

Today, my colleague and I had the opportunity to touch upon the  development of Armenian- Greek relations. Over the past 30 years, we  have managed to establish strong interstate relations and a  comprehensive bilateral agenda that includes active political  dialogue, cooperation in the economy, defense, transport, culture and  other important areas.

We underscored our effective cooperation also within the trilateral  format of Armenia-Greece- Cyprus. I am sure that with joint efforts  we will be able to further develop this important format which will  serve the promotion of vital interests of our three countries. 

Today we also comprehensively discussed regional and international  developments. I presented to my colleague the situation in the South  Caucasus, including the consequences of the recent aggression of  Azerbaijan against the sovereign territory of the Republic of  Armenia.  We stress the importance of the appropriate and adequate  response of the international community to the maximalist and  criminal aspirations of Azerbaijan against stability and peace.   Inadequate, equating responses to the aggressor and the target of  aggression lead to new crimes.  In this context, we value the  position of friendly Greece regarding the resulting situation.  It is  clear that the consequences of the aggression should be eliminated,  i.e. first of all, the Azerbaijani armed forces must withdraw from  the sovereign territory of Armenia, the Armenian prisoners of war  must be repatriated and the ceasefire regime must be fully observed.  At the same time, the international community should prevent perilous  steps and possible new aggressions of Azerbaijan through clear  actions and mechanisms.

Today we also discussed the process of peaceful settlement of the  Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. I would like to remind you that it was on  this exact day two years ago, when Azerbaijan unleashed a large-scale  aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh and its people. Today, two years  later, the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remains unsettled, because the  core issues of the conflict have not been resolved.

I would like to emphasize once again that, as a responsible member of  the international community, we reject the approach of resolving  issues through the use of force and the threat of use of force, and  reaffirm our commitment to establish peace and stability in the  region through peaceful negotiations.  I will conclude my speech  here, and I gladly pass the floor to you, dear colleague," Mirzoyan  summed up.
