Armenia ‘Did Not Ask CSTO to Help Resolve Conflict in Karabakh’


MOSCOW (PanARMENIAN.Net) — Armenia did not request the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) mechanisms to resolve the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, CSTO Secretary General Stanislav Zas said at a press conference on Tuesday, February 2.

According to him, the organization has repeatedly advocated for the cessation of hostilities and the settlement of the conflict peacefully, and that position has not changed, TASS reports.

“Why didn’t the CSTO intervene? You can’t think that our organization has limited itself to observing the situation, expressing demands for a ceasefire and negotiations. No, we did a lot of work,” said Zas.

“In that situation, there was no request from Armenia for military or any other kind of assistance from the CSTO.”
