Sergei Lavrov: Russia will never supply arms if destabilization threat emerges

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russia will never supply arms if destabilization threat emerges, Russian Foreign Minister said.

“Purchase of S-300 by a country causes panic about possible destabilization. As a matter of fact, S-300 is a defense system which is deployed in compliance with international norms,” Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with Public Armenian Television, when commenting on reports on possible sale of S-300 to Azerbaijan.

“S-300 is meant to defend the territory from missile attacks. I am confident that no country in the region we are speaking about is planning to unleash war. I was personally present at the meeting between Presidents of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, who signed documents excluding use of force for resolution of the Karabakh conflict,” he said.
