The Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF) hosted a meeting with H.E. Marta Ayvazyan, Advisor to the Minister of the Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia. This discussion included Amb Kanwal Sibal, Amb Ashok Sajjanhar, Amb Anil Trigunayat, Lt Gen Sawhney, and Dr. Pravesh Kumar Gupta. The experts from VIF and H.E. Ayvazyan discussed the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict and its implications for other countries, particularly Armenia. Apart from that, the India-Armenia relationship was discussed. Armenia is a post-Soviet country and a close partner of the Russian Federation. Armenia is also a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), which is led by Russia, and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). As a result, its position in relation to the current geopolitical shifts is critical.

For thousands of years, Armenia and India have shared civilisational, cultural, socio-political, and economic ties. In the ever-changing geopolitical environment, it is pointless to emphasise the critical importance of closer and strategic ties between Armenia and India. India-Armenia Bilateral cooperation encompasses political, trade-economic, educational, scientific and technological, industrial, agricultural, civil aviation, and defence sectors. With the Russia-Ukraine conflict, India-Armenia cooperation has become even more important. The International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC) is a multimodal transportation network that includes India and Armenia. This project is also important for both countries because it diversifies their transportation networks. Participants in the discussion emphasised the importance of both countries' bilateral relations and suggested numerous ways to strengthen it.
