Pashinyan and Moore during a meeting in Yerevan in December 2022

MUNICH — Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan met on Friday with the chief of Britain’s foreign intelligence agency, Richard Moore, on the sidelines of the annual Munich Security Conference.

In a one-sentence statement on the meeting, Pashinyan’s press office said nothing about the agenda or other details of their conversation in the southern German city.

Moore, who runs the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) also known as MI6, previously met with Pashinyan during a surprise visit to Yerevan in December 2022. The Armenian government said at the time that they discussed “processes taking place in the South Caucasus.”

The British spy chief flew to the Armenian capital four days after meeting with Armen Grigoryan, secretary of Armenia’s Security Council, in London. Shortly after that visit, Pashinyan’s government pushed through the parliament a bill on the creation of an Armenian foreign intelligence service.

U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Director William Burns visited Armenia and held talks with Pashinyan in July 2022. Few details of those talks were made public.
