Armenia never intended to drag CSTO into military conflict - Pashinyan

Armenia never intended to drag CSTO into military conflict - Pashinyan

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 28, ARMENPRESS.  Armenia has never sought to involve the CSTO in a military conflict. However, the seriousness of the organization is demonstrated if the territorial integrity of a member country is violated and aggression against that country takes place.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this Wednesday during a question-and-answer session with members of the government in the National Assembly.

"It is very important to note that what we expected from the CSTO was never primarily about military intervention. Let us not mistakenly assume that we attempted to drag the CSTO into a war and thereby place our partners in a difficult situation. At the same time, we acted as provided for in the CSTO documents. First and foremost, we expect a political stance," Pashinyan said.

Pashinyan also emphasized the importance of this in terms of mediation. Armenia is also ready to accept the mediation of the countries that recognize these principles, but is not ready to accept the mediation of those who do not recognize them, because this will cause many problems.

"We never wanted to drag the CSTO into a military conflict. If the territorial integrity of a member country has been violated and aggression has taken place against that country, then the seriousness of that organization can be seen, whether that organization is really dedicated to that principle or not. We didn't say, ''come and solve the problem by military means.' We asked to give a diplomatic and political assessment. We proposed that there should be a thesis that CSTO will use all political and diplomatic mechanisms to solve the problem. There was no agreement on these two points," he said.
