Greece and Cyprus express support to Armenia amid clashes with Azerbaijan


The Foreign Ministers of Greece Nikos Dendias, of Cyprus Ioannis Kasoulides, and of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan, held a tripartite meeting on Monday during the 77th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

During the meeting, the three foreign ministers discussed a number of security issues related to the South Caucasus and the Eastern Mediterranean.

According to a tweet, Minister Dendias also discussed with his two counterparts the recent escalation of Turkish rhetoric towards Greece and prospects for solving the Cyprus issue.

For his part, Minister Mirzoyan briefed Dendias and Kasoulides on the current situation resulting from the recent Azerbaijani aggression against Armenia.

In response, the Cypriot and Greek ministers expressed their solidarity and support to the Armenian people.

“Any revisionism, no matter where it comes from, no matter what country it starts from and, in fact, with an attempt to use the energy situation as a weapon against certain states to try to change things on the ground, will meet our resistance,” Dendias said.

The foreign ministers also expressed readiness to continue active contacts within the trilateral format in order to bring it to a qualitatively new level and expand the scope of cooperation.
