The meeting of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia Dmitry Medoev with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Artsakh David Babayan was held on 12 August in an online format.

During the conversation, the parties discussed the state and prospects of further development of bilateral relations between South Ossetia and Artsakh, including expanding cooperation in the field of humanitarian issues and education with the involvement of scientists and specialists from higher educational institutions of the parties.

The ministers expressed a mutual disposition to continue the constructive relations that have developed between the foreign ministries of the two countries, confirming the course towards expanding interstate cooperation.

David Babayan has noted that the Alan-Armenian relations going back centuries, the history of friendship between the two peoples dating back centuries, are undoubtedly a solid foundation for the further development of bilateral relations.

In the conversation, David Babayan also spoke about the existing problems associated with the consequences of the armed aggression against the Republic of Artsakh last autumn, stressing the positive role of the Russian peacekeepers, who are the only guarantors of peace and stability in the region.

Dmitry Medoev, for his part, noted the commonality of the historical destinies of the two young states, which had to go through the same difficult trials after the collapse of the USSR - military aggression from neighbors, great human losses, and wished the people of Artsakh peace, resilience and the earliest possible overcoming of all difficulties.

At the end of the conversation, Dmitry Medoev invited David Babayan to visit South Ossetia at a convenient time for him.
