“Armenia will definitely remain in the CSTO. Despite all the difficulties and not everything being agreed upon, Armenia will remain in the CSTO,” Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian President, said in his statement to journalists regarding the results of the CSTO summit.
“Despite all the complexity of the event [the CSTO summit], despite the fact that not everything was agreed during the speeches of the leaders, it once again confirmed the relevance of this format, the relevance and viability of the CSTO,” the Kremlin spokesman added.
Peskov said that during the talks, the leaders of the CSTO countries discussed the issue of extending the peacekeeping mission in Armenia, as well as the fate of the peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan: “This topic was touched upon very openly, very directly, and constructively. Not everything has been agreed yet, there are certain nuances.”
