Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan discussed the ongoing conflict in the Gaza Strip during an interview with Al Jazeera, highlighting Armenia’s strong opposition to the targeting of civilian populations.

“We firmly condemn the targeting of civilians. In Nagorno-Karabakh, we witnessed a similar crisis where over 100,000 Armenians were forced to flee their ancestral homes to protect their families. Therefore, we vehemently oppose any actions that harm civilian populations,” Mirzoyan said.

He mentioned that Armenia recently provided humanitarian aid to alleviate the suffering of those affected by the conflict and reiterated Armenia’s support for a peaceful resolution and a two-state solution to address the longstanding Palestinian issue.

Mirzoyan also expressed Armenia’s readiness to safeguard cultural and spiritual heritage, especially manuscripts, from conflict zones.

Armenia is “ready to preserve the cultural and spiritual heritage, particularly when it comes to the written heritage,” he said. “We have a famous and world-known depositary for the manuscripts so we can temporarily host the manuscripts, if there is a need, from the conflict zone, preserve them and then return when everything is settled.”

When asked about Yerevan’s role in ending the conflict and proposing solutions, Mirzoyan stated that Armenia is actively advocating for peace and cessation of hostilities.

He emphasized that if official Yerevan could contribute to achieving a peaceful settlement, they are prepared to offer assistance.
