Yerevan to expand military cooperation with Washington
Yerevan. (Interfax) – Military cooperation between the United States
and Armenia will expand regardless of the outcome of the presidential
elections in America, Armenian Defense Minister Serzh Sarkisian said
taking questions from journalists in Yerevan on Wednesday.
“Our cooperation with the United States has been developing and
expanding, and we will continue to follow this way,” the minister said.
He pointed out that the U.S. and NATO announced South Caucasus an area
of their strategic interests.
At the same time, Armenia is not seeking to join NATO now, and its
cooperation with the U.S. and the Alliance is not aimed at replacing
Russian-Armenian military-strategic partnership, he said.
