Armenian Vision for Stability and Peace:

Mirzoyan also informed Ghobash of the Armenian vision for establishing stability and lasting peace in the South Caucasus, a region fraught with challenges, especially following the 2020 war initiated by Azerbaijan against Nagorno-Karabakh.

Addressing Rights and Security Concerns:

Mirzoyan stressed the necessity of addressing the rights and security concerns of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh through international mechanisms.

Moreover, Mirzoyan highlighted the deteriorating humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh, which resulted from Azerbaijan’s unlawful blockade of the Lachin corridor since December 2022 and the subsequent siege of 120,000 Nagorno-Karabakh residents since June of the same year.

UN Security Council Attention:

He stressed the importance of ongoing international attention to this issue, including action from the UN Security Council, which is responsible for global peace and security.
