Sargsyan: Russia remains Armenia's strategic partner despite supplying weapons to Azerbaijan

According to Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, the Kremlin remains a strategic partner of Armenia, despite the fact that Russia supplies arms to Azerbaijan, as reported by Sputnik.

"It's a fact that Russia is our strategic ally and we are a member of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization). We are sensitive to the fact that Russia and other CSTO countries continue to supply weapons to Azerbaijan. But, as you know, our abilities to resist this are limited," Sargsyan said.

On April 2nd, Armenia and Azerbaijan reported the aggravation of the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh. The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has accused Armenia of initiating hostilities, while the Armenian Defense Ministry reported "offensive actions" from the Azerbaijani side. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs report that's already outdated, as a result of the exacerbation of the conflict, 33 people were killed and 200 more were injured in Nagorno-Karabakh.

On April 5th, both sides stated that they had suspended military operations in the conflict zone.
