EU mission in Armenia is a "valuable instrument" for increasing regional security, says Mirzoyan

Speaking in a joint press conference with his Romanian counterpart Bogdan Aurescu in Bucharest on Monday (3 April), the Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan has said that the EU civilian mission in Armenia is a "valuable instrument" for increasing security on the ground and contributing to peace and stability in the region.

"Sending EU monitors to the Armenian side of the international border between Armenia and Azerbaijan immediately after the Azerbaijani aggression against Armenia in September 2022 and then deploying a long-term EU civilian monitoring mission is the EU’s important engagement in our region," said Mirzoyan.

"We view it as a valuable instrument to increase security of people on the ground and contribute to peace and stability in the region. We appreciate Romania’s valuable contribution in the relevant discussions in the EU," he added.

The foreign ministers also discussed the effective implementation of Armenia-EU political and security dialogue and the Armenia-EU Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement signed in November 2017.
