In the immediate aftermath of the public comments by Armenian military figures which prompted the protests, I underlined to the Armenian Foreign Minister the UK's continued support for Armenia's democracy. We continue to engage the Armenian authorities via the British Embassy in Yerevan, to reiterate our support for the democratically elected Government in Armenia and for the right of the Armenian people to protest peacefully.
