“BSEC is a regional cooperation organization and this is why we consider the attempts of some countries to politicize its activities by adopting documents that go beyond its powers and are contrary to its Charter as unacceptable, “Nazaryan said after the meeting of representatives of the foreign ministries of BSEC member-states in Yerevan.
Karen Nazaryan also noted that since January 1, 2018 Armenia will be coordinating BSEC’s information technologies and telecommunications sector for two years, which are also among the priority directions of the country’s development. Nazaryan also noted that Armenia attaches great importance to deepening cooperation in this area.
Nazaryan said that Armenia will continue to actively participate in the activities of the organization, paying particular attention to the economic component.
“Within the framework of its chairmanship, Armenia focused on the priorities defined by the charter: cooperation in the areas of trade, energy, transport, tourism, science, technology, education, telecommunications development,” Nazaryan said.
