YEREVAN.- There is no contradiction between Armenia’s cooperation with NATO and CSTO, head of the Armenian delegation to NATO Koryun Nahapetyan told reporters on Thursday.

Armenia’s CSTO membership is a part of country’s military-political strategy but it is not damaging the relationship with NATO.

“We believe such cooperation is advantageous to Armenia. The ongoing reforms are carried out in separate directions with NATO’s assistance,” he said, pointing out defense and security reforms.

Nahapetyan is hopeful that concrete moves will be taken in the future to state progress in Armenia-NATO relations. 

“There is no contradiction between cooperation with two blocs. We will continue developing steps defined by the President of Armenia as the main foreign policy directions,” Nahapetyan added.

Speaking about the Alliance’s cooperation with the South Caucasus, the Armenian delegate said Georgia-NATO and Armenia-NATO relations differ radically. 

“Georgia wants to become a NATO member.  As for Armenia, NATO membership is not on the agenda,” he emphasized.
