Armenian and Russian Defense Ministers Suren Papikyan and Sergei Shoigu on Tuesday, August 16 discussed the activity of Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh. The two met on the sidelines of the X Moscow Conference on International Security. "We have things to discuss, there are traditional issues related to our military cooperation. And, of course, issues related to the activities of our peacekeeping contingent, which performs tasks in Nagorno-Karabakh. We remain as confident as you that the main stabilizing factor is the ceasefire along the entire line of contact," Shoigu said. Papikyan said, meanwhile, that the two are meeting for the second time since the beginning of the year, which shows the high level of bilateral Armenian-Russian allied cooperation. "This meeting is very important for us. We highly appreciate the achieved level of the Armenian-Russian cooperation, as well as the role of the Russian presence in the South Caucasus," the head of the Armenian Defense Ministry said.
