‘Lavrov means – if ISIS attacks Armenia, base is ready’

Aravot, Armenia

”Lavrov’s words are fit with the facts written in the military operations. And the operation is that in the case of aggression against The RA base is ready. It cannot be used for other purposes than what is written in the operations”, during the press conference said the RA former Defense Minister Vagharshak Harutyunyan referring to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s recent statement that the Russian military base in Armenia can also be used against the ISIS.

He said that Lavrov means that if there be an attack on the RA by the ISIS, yes, the base is ready. ”The military base cannot be used unilaterally; the latter is enshrined in the contract”, noted he.
