Russia's obligations under the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) apply to Armenia, but not to Nagorno Karabakh, press Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told media representatives, AzVision.az reports with reference to Russian Vedomosti online newspaper.

"I speak about obligations and in this case, the point is namely Armenia. The Russian President has clearly and completely clarified this and delimited these two issues. The CSTO obligations don’t apply to Karabakh," Peskov said, answering the question whether Russia is ready to send military personnel to the zone of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict within CSTO.

He reminded that the countries participating in the treaty should stand up for one of the participants in case of aggression.
