"Russia is waiting for Yerevan's final decision related to its participation in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO)," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told journalists at a press conference on the final results of the 3rd Antalya Diplomatic Forum, APA reports.

The minister noted that it is the time for Armenia to make a decision on its status in the CSTO.

According to Lavrov, the statements about the CSTO leaving Armenia alone in the solution of the Garabagh conflict do not reflect truth:

"Unfortunately, Yerevan has decided to pursue a policy of worsening relations with Russia. This does not fit into the framework of alliance relations. "Armenia has decided to rely on countries outside the region that are insisting on Yerevan to cut ties with Russia."
