Armenia and Norway Sign Agreement on Re-Admission
12:48 – 30.01.10

On January 29, while in Oslo for a brief official visit, Armenian
Minister of Foreign Affairs Edward Nalbandian met with his Norwegian
counterpart, Jonas Gahr Store.

Over a business lunch, the two foreign ministers discussed steps taken
toward developing bilateral relations, as well as regional and
international issues.

Store shared with Nalbandian his country’s foreign policy and his
experience in cooperation between Scandanavian countries, noting that
it could also be applied in other regions. In this context, Nalbandian
placed emphasis on one of the world’s leaders in hydrocarbon reserves
and one of the world’s most peaceful countries, Norway’s policies and
activities toward reinforcing international security, saying that it
can set an example for other countries.

Nalbandian, in turn, shared with Store the main goals and aims of
Armenia’s foreign policy, as well as efforts toward establishing
security and stability in the Caucasus, steps taken toward
`co-habiting’ with the European family, the latest developments in the
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement process, the Armenian president’s
initiative in establishing relations between Armenia and Turkey and
other efforts in that regard.

Near the end of the meeting, Nalbandian and Store signed an Agreement
on Re-Admission between Norway and Armenia.

As announced by the RA Ministry of Foreign Affairs press office, a
joint press release was issued as a result of the meeting.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
