Post Armenian Parliament Approves New Defense Agreement with Russia

YEREVANArmenias National Assembly ratified a new Russian-Armenian agreement on a joint military force on Oct. 5.

Accoridng to an RFE/RL Armenian service report, the joint contingent comprises troops from the Russian military base in Armenia and an Armenian army corps. It has been led by Armenian army generals since its creation in 2001.

The Armenian Parliament approved the treaty, ratified by Russias Parliament this summer, by 87 votes to seven. All of the parliamentarians who voted against the accord were from the opposition Yelk bloc.

Deputy Speaker of Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov, who is a spokesperson for the ruling Republican Party (RPA), insisted that the Russian-Armenian military force will boost Armenias security. Following the vote, he said that the agreement will defend the country in case of a military attack by Turkey or Azerbaijan.

If a tense situation erupts on Armenias borders and if Armenia appeals to its alliesRussia and the [Collective Security Treaty Organization]they will be obliged, under the CSTO statutes, to intervene and defend Armenia. The same will be true for that military force, if necessary, Sharmazanov told RFE/RLs Armenian service.
