  Russian defense minister meets with Armenian counterpart

Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergey Shoigu and his Armenian counterpart Vagharshak Harutyunyan held a working meeting in Moscow on Friday, reports citing TASS.

"We will discuss regional security issues related to the operation of the peacekeeping forces in Nagorno-Karabakh and, undoubtedly, all the acute problems that have emerged by now," Shoigu said.

He noted that Russia and Armenia are strengthening military interaction both in the bilateral format and within the framework of international structures, first of all, the CSTO.

As the Russian defense chief pointed out, the sides "are successfully implementing the agreements on establishing the joint group of troops of our armed forces."

Shoigu stressed that "the operation of the 102nd Russian military base in Armenia, which we consider as an important factor of providing regional security, is an indicator of the high level of bilateral cooperation."
