RUSSIAN ARMED FORCES ARE IN RA UPON REQUEST OF RA
Russian armed forces are in no way connected with Karabakh problem and our
relations with Azebaijan.
Russian forces are quartered in Armenia upon request and suggestion of RA,
according to agreement and they form a part of our national security. If you
are interested towards who we may need Russian armed forces’ support, I’ll
say yes, toward Turkey which up today carries out hostile policy to us. What
will be in the future, we’ll see. I repeat. Russian armed forces are in
Armenia on request of our state, for our interests and we must decide how
long they’ll stay in Armenia’, – Serge Sargsyan noted, answering the
transparent remark of UK Special representative in the South Caucasus Bryan
Serge Sargsyan also noted that drastic changes are expected in the sphere of
defence after regulation of Karabakh conflict.
On an extended opinion that we fall behind our neighbours in NATO Serge
Sargsyan stated, `We are neither behind nor ahead, a very natural process
goes on and I’m satisfied with it’.
