The Republic of Armenia has not changed its stance in the NK conflict settlement issue – according to FM Zohrab Mnatsaganian the issue must be resolved exclusively peacefully.
The FM made the remarks during a joint news conference today with EU Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighborhood Policy Johannes Hahn.
“The decider of Nagorno Karabakh’s status are the NK people. We have resolve to defend both Nagorno Karabakh, and Armenia. We know our capabilities, but we want to settle this process in a peaceful way,” Mnatsaganian said.
Asked on the possibility of meeting his Azerbaijani counterpart during the upcoming Munich Security Conference, or whether PM Nikol Pashinian and Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev might meet at the event, the FM said that nothing is yet decided neither on this issue nor on Pashinian’s participation at the conference.
