MOSCOW, June 15. /TASS/. Russia plans to maintain strategic partnership with Armenia, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Wednesday at a meeting with his Armenian counterpart Seyran Ohanyan.
"We would like to maintain our strategic partnership further," Shoigu said.

"The tempo and intensity of our cooperation satisfy us. We cooperate in all spheres, I’d like to separately note the education sphere," the defense minister said.
He recalled that many Armenian military are trained in Russian military academies, and this year Armenia filed an application for the training of more than 200 officers. "We are ready to support it", Shoigu added.
