"I think Armenia has decided very clearly to make a shift in their foreign policy to take some distance from Moscow," NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for the Caucasus and Central Asia Javier Colomina said in an interview with Georgia's First Channel, APA reports.

Answering a question wether he sees interest from Yerevan in getting closer to NATO, Colomina noted that Armenia has decided very clearly to take some distance from Moscow.

"It’s something that we have encouraged. The Armenians are free to take their own decisions, but they decided to do that and I believe they’re already starting to get closer to us – to ask for more cooperation, to ask for more political dialogue, to ask for more NATO presence and visibility in the relationship they have with us," Colomina stated.

"We encourage whatever is decided by our partners that we believe is good for the stability of a region. That is very important for us," the Special Representative added.
