Anders Fogh Rasmussen in Armenia 2023

Last time Anders Fogh Rasmussen was in Armenia was in 2012 as the then-Secretary General of NATO, and a lot has happened since then.

Rasmussen, who is now the founding chairman of Rasmussen Global international political consultancy organization, is currently in Armenia right now and he met with reporters today.

He said that he is in Armenia at the invitation of the country's government, and to help the latter strengthen ties with the West and the EU.

Rasmussen said yesterday he met with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan as well as the Ministers of Defense and Foreign Affairs of Armenia — and expressed his satisfaction with the efforts aimed at strengthening democracy in the country.

“Today I was at the Lachin corridor that links Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia. It is currently blocked by Azerbaijanis, leaving 120,000 residents without access to essential goods. The EU must push Azerbaijan to lift the blockade. If not, we risk a humanitarian catastrophe,” Rasmussen tweeted.
