ARMENIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY DELEGATION AVOIDS VISIT TO
BAKU

YEREVAN, MAY 30, ARMENPRESS; The Armenian defense
ministry has decided against sending a delegation of
top officers to Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan
that is to host a regular meeting of the CIS Defense
Ministers Council.
A spokesman for Armenian defense ministry, Seyran
Shahsuvarian, said the decision was made after the
secretariat of the CIS Defense Ministers Council
failed to receive Azerbaijani authorities guarantees
that they will ensure the safety of the Armenian
delegation.
A press release disseminated today by Armenian
defense ministry said this was another evidence of
Azerbaijan’s failure to respect its international
commitments-in this case to ensure the security of
participants of an international event held in its
territory.
The press release also said the CIS Council of
Defense Ministers should be able to provide equal
conditions for all participants of the meeting. ‘We
expect the official explanation of the CIS Defense
Ministers Council,” the Armenian pres release said.
