Armenia: CSTO's lack of consensus on Yerevan-Baku conflict damages organisation's reputation - Pashinyan

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said the lack of consensus in the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) on the conflict between Yerevan and Baku was damaging the organisation's reputation, during a session of the CSTO Collective Security Council in Yerevan, on Wednesday.

"In fact, to date, we have not been able to reach a decision on the CSTO's response to Azerbaijan's aggression against Armenia. These facts do enormous damage to the image of the CSTO both inside and outside our country. I consider this to be the main failure of Armenia's chairmanship of the CSTO," Pashinyan said.

The Armenian Prime Minister also noted the success of the organisation.

"I am referring to the rapid response of the CSTO to the request of the President of Kazakhstan, Mr Tokayev, to support them in the restoration of law and order in the country in January of this year. In this case, we resolved the issue overnight, allowing Kazakhstan to avoid domestic chaos," the politician stressed.

The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan flared up again on the border on September 13, with both sides accusing each other of shelling their positions.
