ATHENS — Greek Minister of National Defence Nikos Dendias met with his Armenian counterpart, Suren Papikyan, during the latter’s visit to Athens on Thursday.

The Defense Ministers of the two countries signed an Agreement “On Military-Technical Cooperation between the Government of the Republic of Armenia and the Government of the Hellenic Republic”.

Following their meeting, Dendias stated, “We condemn terrorism and strive to protect civilians. We support everyone’s right to live in their ancestral homes. We endorse the resumption of negotiations between Azerbaijan and Armenia, facilitated by the European Union, to establish conditions of peace and security for the region’s peoples. We stand by the Armenian people.”

Dendias noted that the meeting coincides with a period of heightened tensions, mentioning the situations in the Caucasus, Ukraine, and the Middle East, which contribute to various pockets of instability in the region.

Against this backdrop, Greece maintains a firm stance, Dendias emphasized, “We support dialogue based on the principles of the United Nations Charter and International Law. We advocate for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of all states, firmly opposing any attempt to forcibly redraw borders.”

The Greek minister highlighted the signing of a military cooperation agreement with Armenia, emphasizing its significance. He mentioned that this agreement is a top priority for the Greek government, aiming to create an innovative system for boosting the Greek defense industry.

Papikyan echoed Dendias, stating that this bilateral military cooperation has a rich history, based on traditionally friendly relations between the two peoples, mutual support readiness, and shared overall views.

  1. Wow, everyone is so friendly now, after standing aside while Azerbaijan and Turkey raped our nation, now they want to sign Military co-operation agreements with Armenia. Where was France & Greece when we needed weapons to fight Turks?
    Now that the turks got what they wanted, oil & gas pipelines continue to supply Europe, and 125,000 Armenians displaced from their ancient homeland, everyone in Europe wants to support us…
    Sorry, too late too little
