Armenia, US armed forces sign agreement on purchases and supplies

YEREVAN, April 26 (Itar-Tass) – Armenia’s Armed Forces and the U.S.
European Command signed an agreement on purchases and supplies on
Monday.

First Deputy Defence Minister Colonel-General Mikhail Arutyunyan,
chief of Armenia’s General Staff, said on Monday the agreement will
make it possible to provide logistical support to each other during
different exercises with the following compensation on a mutual
basis.

All obligations `are of mutual nature and allow the armies of the two
countries to establish ally relationship,’ the Armenian general said.

General Charles F. Wald, deputy commander of the U.S. European
Command, said the agreement is very important both for the U.S. and
Armenia. The agreement envisions fuelling up of American military
planes at Armenia’s airfields. Armenian aircraft will be fuelled up
at U.S. military bases in Europe.
