Armenia’s Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan today held phone talks with his Greek counterpart Nikos Dendias, as reported the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia.

Mirzoyan presented in detail the situation created in consequence of the hostilities unleashed by the units of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan against the sovereign territory of Armenia.

Minister Mirzoyan emphasized that the subsequent Azerbaijani aggression was preceded by the encroachments that the top leadership of Azerbaijan has been carrying out against the territorial integrity of Armenia and the threats of use of force that it has been making for months, including the unlawful statements on ‘opening a corridor’ by force and the Armenophobic and bellicose rhetoric.

The Armenian foreign minister also stressed the major role of a proper and addressable response to the behavior and actions of Azerbaijan in restraining the future provocations of the Azerbaijani side and discharge of the situation.

The interlocutors also discussed several issues of mutual interest in regard to regional security and exchanged views on the peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
