He recalled that Armenia is a partner country for NATO and participates in NATO missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan.

“This gives us (the) opportunity to participate in providing the international security. But we are member of the Organization of Collective Security treaty and we see in general Armenia in this organisation and this security system,” he added.

In an interview with Euronews, Pashinyan affirmed his government readiness to fight against corruption but said “it's very important to do it strongly in the framework of law with protection of human rights.”
