ArmInfo. If anyone were to think that they are more relaxed in the global world or should be more relaxed than the government or citizens of the Republic of Armenia, they would be significantly wrong, Armenia's Premier Nikol Pashinyan The Telegraph.
"I communicate with leaders of many European countries and not just European ones. All countries have these security challenges because we live in a world where no one can tell what will happen tomorrow morning or tonight. This is the whole logic of the modern world. And if we also take globalization, the world has become much smaller. see what's happening around us, what's happening in Ukraine, what's happening in Israel, what's happening in our nearby sea basins. No one can be relaxed. If anyone were to think that they are more relaxed in the global world or should be more relaxed than the government or citizens of the Republic of Armenia, they would be significantly wrong.
"Secondly, the challenges you mentioned, and I am saying this in all seriousness because now and for the last two years the international community is discussing whether or not there will be a nuclear war. And because I am in a position where I have interactions with several potential sides of that nuclear war, I know how serious a topic it is. In this sense, at least, Armenia is significantly safer because I don't think anyone is going to launch a nuclear strike on Armenia. Meanwhile, many countries are not sure that they feel so secure.
"The reason I am reacting to you like this is that I want you to understand me correctly. it is very important to understand that in many other countries it is not safer than in the Republic of Armenia. And from another perspective, by the way, the Republic of Armenia ranks 7th in the world in terms of its domestic safety level on Numbeo's latest ranking. I mean, now you are sitting in the 7th safest country in the world, which, I think, is not bad," Mr Pashinyan.
As to what is your message to my readers, to the government ministers who read The Telegraph because the world is seriously discussing the chances of nuclear war in a reality where we no one can predict what is going to happen tomorrow, Armenia's premier said:
"The message I would send to your readers is the following: I know how difficult it is, I know what hardships need to be overcome, and I will do my best for peace to be established in our region, I will do the share of work that concerns us, and I I hope that other countries in our region will do the same. For some of our partners there is confidence that they will do so, for others there is not so much confidence, but that is one of the key goals and meanings of our foreign relations, and we have called that policy 'regionalization' so that we can achieve peace in our region."
