CSTO’s Military Component Must Remain Strong


July 23

Chairman of the RA National Security Artur Baghdasaryan believes that
the military component of the Collective Security Treaty Organization
must not be weakened.

"The CSTO was formed as an organization supposed to contribute to
regional and international security, enhancement of the member-states’
defensive potential," Baghdasaryan stated at the opening ceremony
for the Rubezh-2008 CPX in Yerevan.

Baghdasaryan pointed out that finding the best means of averting
various threats is a guarantee of the CSTO’s efficient activities.

He also pointed out the necessity for strengthening the collective
security system. Baghdasaryan stressed that the Rubezh- 2008 CPX is
supposed to strengthen the CSTO’s military component. P.T.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
