Downing of Russian jet by Turkey was a challenge to efforts against terrorism: Armenian President

“The downing of the Russian Su-24 by Turkey was a challenge to the fight against international terrorism, the efforts targeted at the settlement of the situation in Syria and establishment of peace in the region,” Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said, addressing the session of the CSTO Collective Security Council. He added that “any support to terrorism should be strongly criticized.”

“In case of the developments connected with the downing of the Russian jet we witnessed how a practical military-political alliance is being formed. The unequivocal support of the NATO member states, i.e. Greece, to Turkey, obviously shows that the principle of “one for all and all for one” is a compulsory condition for the effectiveness of such alliances. Even though Turkey’s actions contradicted all norms and principles of friendship and good-neighborly relations, even though it shot down a jet on military mission against terrorism, no NATO member state questioned the auctioned the actions of the Turkish side. We must draw lessons from this,” President Sargsyan said.
