The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Poland to Armenia
Zdzislaw Raczynski in an interview to Armenian News-NEWS.am said that
Poland will not supply weapons to any of the parties of the Karabakh
conflict.

When answering to the question about the possible cooperation between
Armenia and Poland in the sphere of defense, the Ambassador said that
Poland will be the last country to do any action that may increase the
tension.

`We all know that if the countries that are involved in a conflict
purchase additional weapons, it contribute to the tension. Poland has
not delivered and will not deliver military equipment for any
conflicting country,’ said the Ambassador.

According to him in terms of Armenian-Polish military cooperation in
general, it is the training, the `leveling’ of standards modeled by
NATO, cooperation in the area of peacekeeping, because Armenian
contingent in Iraq participated in the Polish division.

`It is not necessary to sell tanks to be able to cooperate. There is a
certain interest from the Armenian side to some developments in the
field of defense, which is MANPADS `Thunder’. But we will not deliver
them to the region. Armenian party relates to this with full
knowledge. There are no differences in opinions,’ noted Zdzislaw
Raczynski.
