In an interview with Egypt's Nile TV, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Zohrab Mnatsakanyan said the following:
“Armenia and Egypt have a very deep and rich bilateral agenda. We also have important platforms of dialogue and cooperation & we share many important common positions on many issues of the regional and international agenda. We have to address the various challenges that concern our nations, our regions. One of the most important things we share is the very strong commitment to peace, security and stability in our respective regions and in this respect we share a lot in common,” he said.
Touching upon the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Mnatsakanyan said the following: “In the South Caucasus, we have our own set of security challenges. We have the unresolved Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, in which our priority focus is on the very existential physical security of our compatriots in Nagorno-Karabakh, and the status of Nagorno-Karabakh. And here we are involved in negotiations, not easy ones, we insist that the conflict can be resolved strictly through peaceful means, we insist that it has to be a compromise-based solution, and it cannot be a solution which is not based on a balance of position, a balance of interest. We are committed to work towards peace and security, towards the peaceful resolution of the conflict.”
