Armenia has frozen participation in the CSTO, Pashinyan said.

The collective security agreement regarding Armenia was not implemented, so Yerevan froze its participation in the organization (CSTO), Prime Minister of the Republic Nikol Pashinyan said in an interview with France24 TV channel.

“In our opinion, the agreement on collective security in relation to Armenia was not implemented, especially in 2021-2022, and this could not go unnoticed by us. We froze our participation in this agreement. Let’s see what happens next,” he said.

Yerevan has repeatedly accused the CSTO and Moscow of failing to fulfill their obligations. Thus, in January, Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia Armen Grigoryan said that the republic “has no expectations” from the Collective Security Treaty Organization, since it did not receive an “adequate reaction” in September 2022 at the time of the “large-scale attack.”


Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan refused to participate in the CSTO summit in Minsk on November 23.
