The situation around Syria is a very sensitive issue for Armenia, and the humanitarian mission emphasizes this, Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan told reporters on Friday.
According to the FM, the approaches in this matter are based on sovereignty and national interests.
“We are not trying to please someone. The humanitarian mission proceeds from the goals declared by us,” the minister said noting the existence of realities with which to reckon and conduct dialogue with partners.
He highlighted the importance of deepening relations with partners: Iran, Georgia, the US. Comparison of interests is a challenge for foreign policy, and an in-depth dialogue with all partners is necessary, the minister noted.
“We are guided by the principle of security of our compatriots in the Syrian issue,” the Foreign Minister noted.
