Armenian Defense Ministry is not necessarily concerned with ongoing strengthening of defense ties between Turkey, Azerbaijan and Georgia, especially in the wake of the recent ministerial meeting in Nakhijevan, the First Deputy Defense Minister of the Republic of Armenia Davit Tonoyan told “Armenpress”.
Armenia has a wide spectrum of mutual security interests with our Georgian neighbors, underpinned by a number of cooperation endeavors, including the defense sector. I believe it is exactly Georgian engagement that will restrain these tripartite relations from being at odds with Armenian national security. Nor the venue of the ministerial meeting you refer to is of particular concern to us, since it was merely a geographic locale in a range of possible options.
However, implications of this cooperation are fully embraced in Armenian strategic defense planning assumptions, to include all its possible adverse effects,” Davit Tonoyan said.
