Armenia must determine extent of cooperation with West: U.S., UK

PanARMENIAN.Net - Ambassadors of the United States and the United Kingdom to Armenia believe that Yerevan should determine itself to what extent it wants to deepen relations with the West.

“A CSTO member, Armenia is closely cooperating with the United States and NATO,” RFE/RL Armenian Service cited U.S. ambassador Richard M. Mills as saying.

“It is important for Armenia to make its own decision as to whom it wants to cooperate with in security and defense sectors.”

According to Mills, Yerevan’s political and military ties with Moscow are no obstacle to its cooperation with the U.S.

Mills, British ambassador Judith Margaret Farnworth and minister of emergency situations Davit Tonoyan were participating in military drills, held by the armies of the three countries.

Farnworth too agreed that Armenia is the one to decide the extent of its cooperation with the West.
