Armenia freezes participation in CSTO

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 23, ARMENPRESS. Armenia’s participation in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) is practically frozen, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has said.

“The CSTO hasn’t fulfilled its security obligations towards Armenia, particularly in 2021, in 2022, and this couldn’t have gone without consequences. And the consequence is that in practice we have basically frozen our participation in the CSTO,” Pashinyan told France24.

Asked on the Russian military base in Armenia, the Prime Minister clarified that the base is located in Armenia not as part of the CSTO. “That’s an entirely different legal-contractual framework, and we haven’t had the occasion to address that framework.”
