EU says not planning military drills with Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - The European Union does not intend to conduct military exercises with Armenia, Lead Spokesperson for EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Peter Stano has said.

“The EU is not considering the possibility of holding joint military exercises with Armenia. The EU is not a military alliance, it is a political and economic community of values,” Izvestia cited Stano as saying on Monday, December 11.

In addition, the European Union has no plans to train Armenian military personnel on the territory of EU member countries, he clarified.

The European Union is studying the possibility of providing support to the Armenian army through the European Peace Facility “in a non-lethal format,” but there are no concrete decisions yet, Stano added.
