STEPANAKERT (Armenpress)—On March 18, an annual meeting chaired by Artsakh’s Foreign Minister Karen Mirzoyan took place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Artsakh Republic. The activities of the Foreign Ministry in 2014 were summarized at the meeting.
The Information Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia reported to Armenpress that Karen Mirzoyan noted that in the previous year the Artsakh Foreign Ministry had continued its consistent activities on the consolidation and development of the positive trends in the process of international recognition of the Nogorno-Karabakh Republic.
Touching upon the process of peaceful settlement of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Karabakh, the NKR Foreign Minister noted that real progress failed to be achieved in this issue in 2014, due to the destructive policy of the Azerbaijani authorities.
Karen Mirzoyan reaffirmed that the Foreign Ministrywould continue its efforts on ensuring the full participation of the NKR in all the stages of the negotiation process – from the exchange of views on the philosophy of settlement to the elaboration and implementation of specific measures and arrangements.
The necessity of presentation of unbiased information on Artsakh to the international community, as well as future development of bilateral cooperation with different countries and the Armenian Diaspora was also stressed.
During the meeting, the process of fulfilling the tasks set up before the Foreign Ministry by the President of the Republic was discussed. The NKR Foreign Minister gave corresponding instructions to the heads of departments and emphasized the necessity of conducting more initiative diplomacy.
