Emphasizing at the government meeting today that although it was not possible to reach an agreement on two important documents, the head of the executive informed that they have been sent for revision, expressing hope that they will be able to come to a common denominator.
“Despite the fact that the declaration of the CSTO Council was not accepted, that is, we did not sign the declaration and the decision on the CSTO response to the escalation of September 13 was not accepted, due to our not signing it, but I say again, I consider the discussion positive in general, I also consider Russia positive. “, Pashinyan said.
At yesterday’s meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers, the Council of Defense Ministers and the Secretaries of the Security Councils of the CSTO member states, CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas announced that the decision of the CSTO Security Council to help Armenia was generally agreed upon.
Later, in the extended session, the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, who is taking over the CSTO presidency from Armenia, explained that the Armenian side had proposed an addition to the document to be signed, but they decided to postpone the discussion of that issue.
