MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. The military and technical cooperation between Russia and Armenia meets the friendly relationship between the two countries, Russia’s Ambassador to Armenia Ivan Volynkin said in an interview with TASS.
"The military and technical cooperation between Russia and Armenia is complex and in line with the friendly relations between the countries," he said.
The sides are consistently improving the contractual legal framework, Volynkin said, adding that an Agreement on creation of a combined force was signed last year, and an Agreement on creation of a combined regional air defense system has recently came into force in the Caucasus region.
According to Russian Ambassador, "the intergovernmental commission on military-technical cooperation regularly discuss the pressing issues of Russia's arms delivery, as well as expansion of cooperation between Russian and Armenian enterprises of the military-industrial complex (its 11th meeting was held last September)."
"The ties between Russia and Armenia are those of allies," he said, adding that "both countries are part of integrations - EAEU and CSTO, which surely puts economic and political commitments on their participants."
"Judging from the fact that those commitments are top priority, of course the relations with the EU are being established without compromising them, which everyone is perfectly aware of," Volynkin added.
