YEREVAN, DECEMBER 6, ARMENPRESS. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, at a meeting with Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan in Skopje, presented the Russian vision of geopolitical developments, and Ararat Mirzoyan shared the Armenian side’s vision regarding Russia’s position on various sensitive issues.
Armenian Foreign Minister said during a question-and-answer session in the National Assembly, in response to a query from Lilit Minasya, deputy of the NA "Civil Agreement" faction.
The deputy inquired about the topic of the recent meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during the 30th OSCE Ministerial Council in Skopje, particularly considering the recent complications in Armenian-Russian relations.
Mirzoyan highlighted that the agenda of bilateral relations between Armenia and Russia encompasses a wide range of areas and issues. The two countries also share overlapping interests in regional matters, ensuring that there is always a substantive topic to discuss with Russia.
"We are always pleased to use the opportunities for such contacts. During the meeting, the Russian Foreign Minister presented their vision on recent events and geopolitical developments. We, in turn, shared our perceptions of their positions and our views on the behavior and positions of the Russian Federation regarding various sensitive issues," said Mirzoyan, assessing the meeting as effective.
The deputy noted that after the meeting, the Russian Foreign Ministry published a video where Sergey Lavrov complained about the representative of Armenia in the OSCE.
“Yes, I saw a fragment of our meeting, which was spread by the Russian Foreign Ministry. There seems to be some kind of misunderstanding. Sergey Lavrov believed that the initiative for the meeting came from our permanent representative to the OSCE, but the information I had was completely different.
Apparently, there was a technical misunderstanding, which was brought to the attention of the Russian Foreign Minister. The conversation was about who initiated the meeting, and I said that we did not initiate it,” said FM Mirzoyan.
