“We will take a full part in NATO’s Cooperative Best Effort exercises
to be held in Baku in autumn,” Armenian Defence Minister Serzh
Sarkisyan has said, Armenpress reports.

He indicated that seven Armenian officers will participate in command
capacities. However, Armenia has agreed that a group of soldiers will
not participate in the exercises, he added. If Azerbaijan attempts to
prevent Armenia from participating in any NATO project, including the
Baku exercises, Armenia will expect a corresponding reaction from the
NATO leadership,” Sarkisyan mentioned.
