Armenia has not come up with a request to postpone December 6 CSTO summit, spokesperson for the Armenian acting PM Arman Yeghoyan told Yerkir.am.
“Armenia has not made such proposal. Everything was in a way presented by the acting Prime Minister,” he said.
Aide to Russian president Yuri Ushakov stated today that the meeting of the heads of the CSTO member states that was due on December 6 has been postponed at the request of the Armenian side.
“Considering the request of the Armenian side we have decided not to conduct CSTO summit on December 6,” Ushkaov told the reporters, explaining the request with the pre-electoral period in Armenia that will end on December 9.
Earlier Armenia’s acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated that the offer to postpone the summit came from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“During our latest phone conversation Russia’s president offered not to conduct a summit but to have a working discussion and then come up with ready solutions. I have agreed as my opinion is that working discussion is a best way for finding solutions. We will continue them until reaching consensus,” Pashinyan said.
