Pashinyan accused two CSTO countries of starting a war in Karabakh against Yerevan

Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan made a statement that caused a wide resonance. During government hour in parliament, he accused two countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) of preparing a war in Karabakh against Armenia in 2020. However, he did not name specific states.

“Our allies did not participate in the preparations for the 44-day war in 2020. I know at least two CSTO countries that participated in preparing a war against us.", said Pashinyan.

According to the Prime Minister, these two countries created the appearance of helping Armenia, while in fact their actions were aimed at undermining the security and independence of Yerevan. He emphasized that military actions in Karabakh in 2020 were aimed at eliminating the independence of Armenia and added that attempts at destabilization continued after the end of the conflict.

Pashinyan noted that Armenia is currently working to neutralize these threats through the delimitation of the border with Azerbaijan. He expressed confidence that these measures will help strengthen the security and sovereignty of the country.

The CSTO includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan.
