    tête format we reflected on the enhancement of the legal framework We touched upon trade and economic exchange turnover of which reached 150 mln US dollars in 2014 that index decreased compared to 2013 when it stood at 200 mln US dollars Of course there is much larger potential in it and we should elaborate new joint projects for fostering of trade and economic cooperation There are opportunities for that numerous business forums were held Trade Chamber operates that exerts considerable efforts in this direction We reflected on the development of inter parliamentary exchanges touched upon regional and international issues Not to forget to mention that Armenia European Union cooperation took its important place during the negotiations particularly during the preparatory period to the Riga Summit I presented to my counterpart the joint efforts exerted by Armenia and OSCE Minsk Group Co Chairs directed towards exclusively peaceful settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh issue We exchanged views on various pressing issues on the international agenda situation in Ukraine developments in the Middle East and other issues I would like to specifically mention that the delegation arrives in Armenia at a time when the Armenian people and the international community commemorate the Armenian Genocide Centenary pays tribute to the victims Belgium is among the states that recognized Armenian Genocide back in 1998 Mr Didier Reynders will visit Tsitsernakaberd today We are full of hope that we will continue in the same maybe more intensive way our active contacts that we continuously had in the past and have now within different frameworks international conferences that we continuously used for meetings and exchange of opinions Thank you Question Mediamax I have two questions first to you Mr Minister How would you interpret Turkey s reaction on statements made by different states and organizations on the Armenian Genocide Centenary Edward Nalbandian Regarding Turkey s reaction I would rather say counter reaction as during the last days revently Turkey criticizes everyone criticizes the Pope the European Parliament that represents 28 states Russia Germany Austria to name but a few I think it would be much easier for Turkey to make just one statement criticising the entire civilized world for speaking a language that is not comprehensible for Ankara But as the entire civilized world speaks in one language and you are not able to grasp it then you should look inward and realize that maybe the problem is inside yourself Question Belgian reporter As long as your state made a choice to join the Eurasian Union I would like to ask what expectations do you have from the Eastern Partnership what does the European Union propose you what expectations do you have from the Riga Summit Edward Nalbandian I will reiterate what we have stated with the European Union at the Vilnius Summit Armenia and the European Union issued a joint statement that stresses that Armenia and the European Union are willing to continue comprehensive cooperation in all possible directions all possible areas and frameworks given

    significantly to this We share considerable well established coordination between the MFAs our diplomats interact within international organizations quite successfully both within the UN and OSCE Council of Europe and BSEC Armenia joined the Eurasian Union and from that point of view additional opportunities surfaced for the widening and strengthening of our economic relations Today we also covered the areas of trade and economic cooperation as well as quite successful cooperation between our military structures This is an entire field of topics relating to military technical cooperation Humanitarian contacts actively develop It refers to those educational institution that were established in Armenia Opening of Lomonosov Moscow State University branch is in prospect We also reflected on a range of regional international issues and particularly centered our attention on the process of the Nagorno Karabakh settlement Here I would like to mention that we commend the efforts of the Russian Federation together with other Co Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group for exclusively peaceful settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict Together with the Co Chairs Armenia will continue its efforts directed towards political settlement of the conflict Thank you Question Vahe Hovhannisyan Armenian Shant TV channel I have questions to both Ministers You touched upon the Nagorno Karabakh issue but I would like to ask you to interpret in more details on which stage the settlement process is The negotiations how did they stick and how did the approaches and principles of the settlement change And I would like to request Sergey Viktorovich to interpret on Russia s reaction Is Russia ready to fulfill her obligations to Armenia in case of an escalation It is no secret that Azerbaijan actively voices territorial claims to even Armenia let alone Nagorno Karabakh It is reflected in official statements and military provocations What the actions would be like once military escalation rise Thank you Edward Nalbandian in addition to S Lavrov s answer I can only add that regarding the stances of the parties I do not think that some changes appear that we could speak about the change in stances of the sides The Co Chairs stance is reflected in the Statements on the level of Presidents of the Co Chair states i e in L Aquila Muskoka Deauville Los Cabos and Enniskillen And Armenia s stance is in line with that of the international community As soon as the Azerbaijani stance would also be in line with that of the international community and the Co Chairs have the mandate of the international community to mediation in the settlement process then indeed we will move towards the opportunity of political settlement to the conflict Unfortunately till now Azerbaijan rejects the proposals of the Co Chairs on the essence of the settlement of the conflict and confidence building measures This is what we have today but there is no alternative to the negotiations Together with the Co Chairs Armenia will continue its efforts directed towards exceptionally peaceful settlement to the conflict Question Maria Glushkova

  • The Address and Answers of Edward Nalbandian to the Questions at the Joint Press Conference with the EU Commissioner Hahn - Press conference - Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia
    of EU projects and cooperate with the EU agencies was signed We hope that in the near future we will also start the second phase of the negotiations that will lead to liberalization of visa regime Mr Hahn pays a rather short visit to Armenia He used this opportunity as well to deliver an address at the Euronest session I hope that Mr Hahn will again have a chance to pay a visit much longer one Armenia soon He received such an invitation We will have an opportunity to continue negotiations also in Brussels and within international multilateral meetings I welcome you Mr Hahn The floor is yours Questions and answers Question Aysor ATV channel Mr Nalbandian Foreign Minister of Turkey stated that Armenia does nothing to settle the Nagorno Karabakh issue Cavusoglu also mentioned that Armenia does not have complicated relations with all its neighbours and gave an advice to us to change our foreign policy direction establishing relations with neighbouring states and undertaking steps towards the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict Your interpretation please Edward Nalbandian I would like to clarify one thing Did you say that Foreign Minister of Turkey said that we have or have not problems Question Aysor ATV channel He said that we have problems with all the neighbours and advised to change our foreign policy Edward Nalbandian You know that reminds me of parable by Jean de La Fontaine Someone looks in the mirror and says If I looked a bit more alike the one I see in the mirror I would die from boredom If it is about having problems with neighbours let alone with all neighbours then both inside and outside of Turkey the impression would be that it is just about that country It is well known that about zero neighbours without problems is voiced not only outside but inside Turkey which is the result of the latter s so called strategic depth foreign policy I believe that before being presumptuous and ambitious to advice and teach lessons one should consider that it has their needs Regarding the question on Nagorno Karabakh it is apparent that Turkey has always created problems for the conflict settlement On the one hand unequivocally protecting contributing to the destructive stance of Azerbaijan on the other hand attempting to sneak in interfere in the efforts of the Minsk Group Co Chairs which has the international mandate Thus I will reiterate what was mentioned not only by us i e if Turkey really wants to contribute to the settlement of the conflict then Turkey should stay as far away from the process as it is possible Question Mediamax I have a question for Foreign Minister of Armenia Mister Nalbandian the rapporteur of PACE Political Affairs Committee Robert Walter visited Azerbaijan to prepare a report on the Nagorno Karabakh issue How would you interpret that Thank you Edward Nalbandian Our approach is well known and I will repeat it once again that one should refrain from
