On September 20, 2022, the Valdai Discussion Club and the Orbeli Analytical Research Center held a closed seminar, titled “The Middle East in the System of Foreign Policy Priorities of Russia and Armenia”.
The purpose of the second joint seminar of the Orbeli Analytical Research Center and the Valdai Club, where the leading Armenian and Russian experts participated, was to assess the nature of the main processes taking place in the Middle East, the interests and policies of Armenia and Russia, and the possibilities of strengthening regional ties, taking into account the interests of such states as Iran and Turkey, as well as the impact that the conflict in Europe has had on the region.
