"This commitment represents the future of Armenia and the entire  South Caucasus. I am grateful for the important and productive  meetings I had with the government members, particularly Prime  Minister Pashinyan, Foreign Minister Mirzoyan, as well as civil  society representatives and other stakeholders here in Yerevan. I had  similar meetings at the beginning of the week in Baku, as well as in  Tbilisi.
