Armenia’s Foreign Minister Sograb Mnatsakanyan said Turkey’s desire to “export its destabilizing policy to the South Caucasus”, reports the correspondent of the newspaper Vzglyad in Tbilisi, citing local media.
In connection with the recent escalation between Yerevan and Baku, the minister in an interview with the TV company “Shant” called the policy of Ankara, which supported Azerbaijan, “destructive and destabilizing.”
He drew parallels with Ankara’s policies in the Eastern Mediterranean, North Africa and the Middle East.
“What happened after July 12 (the beginning of the conflict) is aimed at exporting this destabilizing policy to the South Caucasus, which for us is unacceptable to what we oppose in all possible ways. We use all available tools, activating all national and international formats,” Mnatsakanyan said.
Earlier, the Armenian Foreign Minister visited Stepanakert, where it was noted that “another attempt by Azerbaijan to deliberately aggravate the situation in the conflict zone is a serious blow to the peaceful settlement of the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict.”
Yerevan stands for Stepanakert’s participation in the format of negotiations with Baku.
