    Russia will remain Armenia's strategic partner despite its military deliveries with Azerbaijan, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said Wednesday.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — Russia will remain Armenia's strategic partner despite Moscow's deliveries of arms to Azerbaijan, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan said Wednesday.

    "It is true, Russia is our strategic ally, and we are members in the CSTO [Collective Security Treaty Organization]. We are sensitive to the fact that Russia, and not only Russia, but other CSTO countries continue to supply arms to Azerbaijan. But as you understand our abilities to counter this are limited," Sargsyan said.
