CSTO SECRETARY GENERAL NOT AGAINST NATO EXERCISES IN ARMENIA
CSTO Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha is not against NATO exercises
in the territory of Armenia. Speaking at a press conference devoted
to the first stage of CSTO exercises ‘Rubezh 2008’ in Yerevan, N.
Bordyuzha said: ‘Every country has a right to build its relations with
various international organizations and alliances. I know that Armenia
is a CSTO member-state that has undertaken definite commitments to
the Organization. As regards the relations with NATO, other states
also have such relations including Russia and I do not think it
terrible if these relations grow into some actions. It is normal
practice. Moreover, Armenia has declared its policy complementary’.
