President Vladimir Putin said that bilateral relations between Russia and Armenia were 'allied', during a meeting with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the sidelines of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organisation) summit in Yerevan, on Wednesday.

"You also mentioned our bilateral relations, which are certainly allied, have ancient and deep roots, there is no need now even to go into that history - for us it is already clear what it is, what significance it has for our bilateral relations," the Russian leader said.

For his part, Pashinyan said he hoped to discuss with Putin steps that could lead to long-term peace in the region.

"There are many issues, and I also talked about this during the CSC (Collective Security Council) meeting - the observance of trilateral agreements, statements which [we] made with the President of Azerbaijan with your help and through your mediation. These are very important issues which of course we have to discuss, and to discuss an agenda which we hope will lead to long-term peace in our region," Armenia's prime minister noted.

The CSTO summit on Wednesday was attended by Putin and Pashinyan, as well as Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko, Kazakh President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, Kyrgyzstan’s Sadyr Zhaparov and Tajik leader Emomali Rahmon.

Politicians discussed current issues of international and regional security, and the main results of the work carried out since the last meeting.
