 On April 22, Foreign Minister of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic Karen Mirzoyan received members of the Pontian Federation of Greece, who had arrived in Artsakh on a familiarization visit.

Karen Mirzoyan welcomed the visit of the members of the Pontian Federation of Greece to the NKR as a manifestation of the Armenian-Greek traditional friendly relations and stressed its importance for getting acquainted with the political, educational, cultural and social life of Artsakh.

During the meeting, Karen Mirzoyan briefed on the current situation in the process of peaceful settlement of the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict, referring to the large-scale military aggression unleashed by Azerbaijan against the NKR on April 2-5 and its consequences. In this regard, the NKR Foreign Minister noted that in their brutality, the war crimes committed by the Azerbaijani armed forces did not differ from the Genocide committed against Christians in the Ottoman Empire a century ago.

During the meeting, the sides exchanged views on the possibilities and prospects of establishing relations between the Pontian Federation of Greece and Artsakh, in particular, its Greek community.
