Two member countries of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) allegedly aided Azerbaijan in preparing for the war against Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh in 2020. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan made this statement during a parliamentary session.

"In 2020, our allies were involved in preparing for the war. Not on our side. I know two CSTO countries that were involved in preparing for war against us," said Pashinyan.

However, he did not name these countries.

Earlier, the Prime Minister of Armenia stated that Yerevan and Baku cannot imagine a peaceful process because they do not know what it is. According to him, the situation is similar to space flights, which once seemed unbelievable.

Pashinyan also noted that the signing of a document between Yerevan and Baku on the demarcation of the border segment is a great success. In his opinion, it is important that demarcation is carried out according to the topographic map of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR from 1976.

In turn, the Speaker of the Armenian Parliament, Alen Simonyan, stated that the republic is interested in negotiations with Azerbaijan. He emphasized that the dialogue between Yerevan and Baku within the framework of negotiations for a peaceful agreement continues.

War for Nagorno-Karabakh

Reminder: the war in the Nagorno-Karabakh region on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border lasted with interruptions for several decades.

In September 2024, Azerbaijan, as a result of its anti-terrorist operation, took control of the entire Nagorno-Karabakh.

Later, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan officially recognized the area of Azerbaijan as 86.6 thousand square kilometers, which also includes Nagorno-Karabakh. However, the countries have not yet reached an agreement.
