While on an official visit to Moscow, Armenia’s Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan discussed the current border standoff with Azerbaijan with Stanislav Zas, the Secretary-General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, of which Armenia is a member.
In discussing the breach of Armenia’s sovereign borders by Azerbaijan, which is not a CSTO member-state, both sides reportedly emphasized the need for a quick resolution and de-escalation of the situation.
Mirzoyan and Zas also discussed in great detail the changing dynamics of the Caucasus region and the international front and addressed their direct impact on the critical interests of CSTO member-states.
Armenia will be assuming the presidency of the CSTO this fall. Mirzoyan pledged that Yerevan will actively develop and strengthen the organization’s potential. Zas, on his end, said that his office will take necessary steps to advance the priorities of Armenia’s CSTO presidency.
