Former CSTO chief “can’t imagine” Armenia’s future without CSTO

PanARMENIAN.Net - Former Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization Nikolai Bordyuzha believes that Armenia will not leave the CSTO, TASS reports.

“We have very good relations with many political forces in Armenia. Therefore, in my opinion, these are temporary phenomena, but in any case, Armenia will remain with Russia, Belarus, and the CSTO,” Bordyuzha noted in an interview with the Belarusian TV channel STV.

According to him, he cannot imagine the future of Armenia without the Organization.

“I just can’t imagine this future, because Armenia is so integrated with Russia, and not only economically, because a huge number of Armenians, several million, live in Russia,” said the former CSTO Secretary General.

Yerevan has repeatedly stated that Armenia does not intend to leave the CSTO or the EAEU. At the same time, the speaker of parliament and the prime minister suggested that “perhaps the CSTO is leaving Armenia.”
