MOSCOW, August 10 /TASS/. Russia has a commitment to supply arms to Armenia, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a news conference held jointly with his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan on Wednesday.
"As far as weapons are concerned, we work with Armenia under a program," the Russian president said when asked if Russia was supplying weapons to Armenia.
"Armenia is a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). It is our ally and we have reciprocal obligations. Russia always sticks to its commitments," Putin said.
The Russian leader added that any country could purchase practically any weapon at a modern arms market.
"Say, a country like Azerbaijan, which is an oil producer with a fast growing economy and a sufficient amount of gold reserves, can certainly buy it wherever it likes," Putin said.
At the same time, he stressed the need to resolve the existing problems peacefully.
