Secretary of the Security Council at the RA President, Defense Minister
Serge Sargsyan told reporters before departing for Brest to participate
in the sittings of the Council of Defense Ministers and Council of the
Security Secretaries of the CIS member states. The Minister stated that
‘the membership in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO)
and cooperation with the NATO do not conflict’. "It’s time to realize
that military and political alliances are formed not against anything.
The NATO, for example, was formed not against any other structure but
for the security of Europe. The Collective Security Treaty Organization
was signed not against the NATO but for ensuring security of the CSTO
member states," Serge Sargsyan said, reports IA Regnum.
