PanARMENIAN.Net - The West is trying in every possible way to intervene in the situation around Nagorno-Karabakh and discredit the Russian peacekeeping policy, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a meeting of the Council of Defense Ministers of the CSTO member states in Minsk on Thursday, May 23, RIA Novosti reports.
"As for the situation in the Caucasus region, it is largely determined by the degree of settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict. Now security in Nagorno-Karabakh is supported by the Russian peacekeeping contingent. However, the West is trying in every possible way to interfere in the situation, increase its presence and discredit the Russian peacekeeping policy," he said. Shoigu.
According to him, the West is trying "to oust Russia from the South Caucasus, and not to ensure the security and prosperity of the region in the long term."
"An example of this is the so-called civilian mission of the European Union in Armenia, which includes military personnel and intelligence officers. I think there is no need to explain what they are actually doing," Shoigu said.
"In this regard, we consider it necessary to continue work on sending a CSTO mission to the region," the minister stressed.
