Armenian Foreign Ministry announced expansion of cooperation with NATO

As part of the meeting of the OSCE Foreign Ministers in Skopje, Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan met with the Special Representative of the NATO Secretary General for the South Caucasus Javier Colomina. Mirzoyan himself announced this. During the meeting, issues of expanding the partnership between Armenia and NATO were discussed. Mirzoyan also emphasized the importance of protecting the borders and sovereignty of each country to ensure global stability.

This statement came after Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan considered the possibility of the country leaving the CSTO if the organization was declared “incompetent.” In addition, Günter Fehlinger, head of the European Enlargement Committee, called for Armenia to join NATO at the beginning of September 2023.

Despite these discussions, NATO reported that Armenia's membership in the alliance is not currently being considered. However, the Russian Foreign Ministry expressed the opinion that Pashinyan is deliberately preparing the country for a political turn away from Russia towards the West.
