Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
by Nana Martirosyan
Within the frames os deepening of the Armenian-Russian partnership, the signing of the contract with Russian military plants on direct weapon acquisition is not ruled out, press-secretary of Armenia's Defence Ministry, Artsrun Hovhanisyan, told Arminfo correspondent.
However, he declined to mention specific dates and terms.
As ArmInfo reported earlier, Yerevan and Moscow are planning to ratify an important agreement, envisaging direct purchases from Russian military plants, in the near future. The deal will provide Armenia with exclusive rights. There's a similar agreement with Belarus, yet it contains some reservations, which the deal with Armenia does not.
