SWISS FOREIGN MINISTER INTENDS TO VISIT SOUTH CAUCASUS IN AUTUMN

YEREVAN, MARCH 11, ARMENPRESS: Swiss ambassador to Armenia Stefan
Schpek told today in Yerevan that his country’s foreign minister
intends to visit the South Caucasus in 2005 autumn. Schpek who is
seated in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia, said Switzerland
looks at the South Caucasus as one region and builds its policy based
on this assumption.
He also said frequent mutual visits by government officials of the
two countries will help establish closer ties. “Switzerland is
interested in seeing stability in the region. Destabilization of the
region would be dangerous to Europe,” he said.
The ambassador has arrived in Armenia to sign an agreement with
Armenian emergency department whereby Switzerland will provide
420,000 Swiss Franks to the Armenian agency to purchase new equipment
and to reinforce its regional branches.
