Security Council chief Grigoryan weighs options for reducing Armenia’s dependencies 

“We should look at security in a broader context. Security is not only about the army. It’s also about diplomacy — how many friends and partners you have. Our history has shown that when you have only one strategic partner, and we put all our security eggs in one basket, then that fails. And we need to change that.”

That’s how Armen Grigoryan, the head of Armenia’s Security Council, describes his administration’s efforts to diversify the country’s security relations following the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war.

Grigoryan sits down with CivilNet’s Patrick Elliott for a wide-ranging interview to discuss Armenia’s foreign policy trajectory, the state of ongoing normalization efforts with Azerbaijan, and Armenians’ right to return to Artsakh.
