Dendias has started his visit by visiting the Tsitsernakaberd Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex and Armenian Genocide Museum.

“Starting my visit in Armenia, I paid tribute and laid flowers at the Armenian Genocide Memorial. I also visited the museum,” Nikos Dendias said on Twitter.

Dendias will meet with his Armenian counterpart, Zohrab Mnatsakanyan.

The talks, according to a foreign ministry statement, will focus on issues of bilateral, regional and international interest, with emphasis on current developments in Nagorno-Karabakh and the Eastern Mediterranean, cooperation between the two countries under trilateral cooperation schemes and EU-Armenian relations.

The foreign minister will then be received by the Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, and the President of the country, Armen Sarkissian.
