Feb 15 2010
Baku, 15 February: "If Armenian-French military cooperation poses a
threat to Azerbaijan’s national interests and continues further to
lead to the occupation of our territories, then Azerbaijan will take
relevant measures," Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov
told journalists, according to APA news agency.
He said that any country can establish any ties with another country,
including military ties: "Azerbaijan does not intervene in bilateral
ties between the two countries. However, these ties should not run
counter to Azerbaijan’s national interests."
Armenia and France signed a military cooperation accord during Armenian
Defence Minister Seyran Ohanyan’s visit to France (last week).
