Armenia welcomes Canada’s decision to join EU mission

The Armenian Foreign Ministry welcomes Canada’s decision to join the European Union Mission in Armenia (EUMA).

“We welcome the initiative of Canada to become part of the EUMA and view it as an important contribution for the Mission’s role in enhancing stability and peace in the South Caucasus region,” the ministry said in a tweet on Thursday.

The EU mission is tasked with observing and reporting on the situation on the ground; contributing to human security in conflict-affected areas and based on the above, contributing to build confidence between populations of both Armenia and Azerbaijan and, where possible, their authorities.

The mission has a two-year mandate and involves up to 100 staff, including EU experts and monitors. Its operational headquarters is in Yeghegnadzor, in Armenia’s Vayots Dzor Province.
