Armenian delegation visits NATO headquarters

Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandyan and Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan visited NATO Headquarters on Tuesday, where they met with NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

Fogh Rasmussen expressed gratitude for Armenia's contribution to the alliance's KFOR operation in Kosovo and to the International Security Assistance Force, as well as the country's contribution to NATO's Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan after ISAF troop withdrawal at the end of this year.

The two ministers also met with the North Atlantic Council to exchange views on their country's cooperation with the alliance and regional security.
Fogh Rasmussen praised Armenia for the new Individual Partnership Action Plan it agreed with NATO and commended the country's efforts towards more transparency and accountability in defense and security matters.

Armenia has been a NATO partner for 20 years, during which the two sides have established a strong political dialogue as well as wide ranging cooperation in the civilian and military arenas.
