Foreign ministers of Armenia, Estonia discuss security in South Caucasus

On 16 October, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan held a phone conversation with Estonian Foreign Minister Margus Tsahkna, reports the Armenian Foreign Ministry press service.

Following up on the meeting in New York in September, the foreign ministers discussed issues related to the current security situation in the South Caucasus.

Minister Mirzoyan emphasized that, despite targeted appeals from international partners, on September 19, Azerbaijan again resorted to force, and after 9 months of the blockade of Nagorno-Karabakh, more than 100 thousand Armenians were forced to leave their homeland in search of safe refuge in Armenia. Ararat Mirzoyan emphasized that Baku’s actions were part of a premeditated policy of ethnic cleansing, which Armenia had been warning about.

The humanitarian challenges facing Armenians displaced from Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as issues of protecting their rights, were touched upon.

In the context of the general security situation in the region, the need to rule out any infringements of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Armenia was emphasized.

The interlocutors exchanged views on the Armenian-Estonian bilateral agenda, as well as on issues of deepening the partnership between Armenia and the EU and cooperation on multilateral platforms.
