The Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia to Poland, Samvel Mkrtchian, as the guest of honor of the conference, referred to the history of the United Nations and recalled its fundamental role in the world - maintaining security and peace. He also mentioned that inter-state relations are characterized by constant tensions and new unexpected realities, which is why he emphasized the importance of debating and maintaining relations. He drew attention to the need to reform the UN structure in order to counterbalance too strong influence of the so-called "big players".
When asked about the situation of his homeland, he admitted that Armenia, due to its location and history, had strong ties to Russia, but emphasized that in terms of its values, it was closer to the European Union. The most important goal is to strengthen democratic institutions and fair society based on democratic principles.
