Escalating tension between Russia and NATO not to influence Armenia's relations with the Alliance: Armenian MP

 The escalating tension between Russia and NATO will not influence Armenia's relations with the Alliance, the head of the Armenian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Koryun Nahapetyan said on Monday.

He said that during their last meeting in May Armenia and NATO discussed further steps to develop their relations. "Recently we suggested hosting a workshop in the framework of the NATO PA's Rose Roth program in 2015 and our partners promised to consider this possibility. We also have Armenian peacekeepers in Afghanistan and Kosovo," Nahapetyan said.

Armenian delegate to the NATO PA Tevan Poghosyan said that NATO is ready to go with Armenia as far as Armenia is ready to go. "In building our relations with the Alliance we must give priority to our national interests and must pay no attention to what relations it has with Russia. Those NATO officials who criticized Russia during the last PA meeting spoke about strategic partnership with that country a year ago in Dubrovnik. So, you see times and realities change and only interests are stable," Poghosyan said.
