While Armenia's decision not to participate in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Summit in Minsk is regrettable, the door remains open, official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova stated during a briefing held today, APA reports.

“We do not believe that such a decision meets the long-term interests of the Armenian people and will contribute to strengthening the security and stability of a friendly country. We understand that our Armenian colleagues do not intend to block the work of the organization’s statutory bodies or impede the approval of already agreed documents,” noted Maria Zakharova.

She emphasized that this leaves open doors for Yerevan and allows it to subsequently join the work of the CSTO.
