YEREVAN (ArmRadio)—Stability in Turkey is important for the region, the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has declared on Saturday.

“We keep following the developments taking place in Turkey,” MFA Spokesman Tigran Balayan wrote on Facebook.

“Stability and order in the neighboring country based on democracy, human rights and fundamental freedoms is important for the whole region,” Balayan continued.

The Border Guard Department of the Russian Federal Security Service in Armenia has reinforced the patrol of the state border between Armenia and Turkey, Press Service of the RIA Novosti reported.

The move comes after an attempted coup in Turkey that led to the death of 265 people. Some 2,839 soldiers, including high-ranking officers, have been arrested.
