Sargsyan: Russia’s sale of arms to Azerbaijan is most painful aspect of Armenia-Russia relations


Russia's sale of arms to Azerbaijan is the most painful aspect of the Armenia-Russia relations, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said during a program on Armenia TV, APA reported citing news.am.

 

"This is the most painful aspect of the Armenian-Russian friendship, the Armenian-Russian military cooperation, and our relations, in general. This issue casts a shadow on a lot of things. However, on the other hand, there are circumstances that are acceptable for them, but not for us. Nothing serious has happened so far. If once there are serious consequences, then it will be possible to blame them. And if there are no serious consequences, we should take this as a long-term political activity of the Russian side for stabilization of the situation in the region,” the Armenian president stressed.

 

Commenting on some politicians’ opinions concerning the need to reconsdier military cooperation with Russia, Sargsyan said that “these are extremely dangerous words that can create an extremely bad situation.”

 

“They suggest that we reconsider the sides we’re cooperating with us. Who are we supposed to reconsider? Turkey or NATO? Are they looking forward to our going to them?” said Sargsyan.
