On April 15, the Armenian government approved a draft protocol on implementing provisions of the agreement signed with the Russian government in 2015 on providing Yerevan with a state export loan in amount of $200 million to finance deliveries of military products.
"The process of weapons delivery to Armenia under the credit agreement in the amount of $200 million has been underway for a long time, but I cannot say what exactly has been delivered," Hovhannisyan told journalists, without specifying the terms of delivery due to "national security interests."
Moscow supplies both Yerevan and Baku with weapons, maintaining a balance of interests, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said last month.
In early April, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other of provoking hostilities in the Azerbaijani breakaway region with a predominantly Armenian population known as Nagorno-Karabakh. The sides reached a ceasefire deal on April 5.
