Greek FM in Armenia: “Revisionist policies will fail”
Greek FM Nikos Dendias, in a statement to the press after meeting with the Armenian FM Ararat Mirzoyan in Yerevan on Tuesday said that the revisionist policies of the countries that seek to redraw maps will fail.
Dendias stated that Greece repeatedly underlined that they support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all states. “That also goes for our dear friends, the Armenians,” he added.
Referring to the recent clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Dendias said that they believe in the inviolability of borders and that their position on Nagorno Karabakh remains unchanged: “We support achieving a peaceful, mutually acceptable solution within the framework of international law. International law is the holy gospel of foreign policy.”
Dendias sent a message to “countries that seek to redraw maps,” that revisionist policies will fail, referring to both Azerbaijan and Turkey, who recently accused Greece of violating international treaties by sending weapons to its Aegean islands.
“Turkey is protesting because Greece does not allow its territories defenseless,” he said.
The Foreign Minister of Armenia, Ararat Mirzoyan said that two years after the war, the Nagorno Karabakh conflict remains unsolved since the issues at the core of the conflict have not been settled.
Mirzoyan stated that the consequences of Azerbaijani aggression must be eliminated and all Azerbaijani troops must withdraw from the sovereign territory of Armenia. Mirzoyan also called for the return of the Armenian prisoners of war.
