PanARMENIAN.Net - The CSTO mission led by Secretary General Stanislav Zas has arrived in Yerevan, the press service of the organization says.

The mission includes representatives of the CSTO member states who are employees of the working bodies of the organization.

After Azerbaijan launched a large-scale attack on Armenia’s sovereign territory, the government of Armenia officially appealed to Russia, the United Nations Security Council and the Collective Security Treaty Organization.
