YEREVAN. – Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Saturday sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, detailing the situation created and the challenges that have arisen as a result of the Azerbaijani-Turkish military aggression against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).

The Armenian Foreign Ministry informed Armenian that the letter particularly highlighted the transfer of foreign armed terrorists from the Middle East and their engagement in the current hostilities against Nagorno-Karabakh.

Taking into account the fact that these hostilities are approaching the border of Armenia and the encroachments already carried out upon the territory Armenia, the latter’s PM petitioned the Russian President to start immediate consultations to determine the type and amount of assistance that Russia can provide to Armenia based on the allied relations between Armenia and Russia, and Article 2 of the August 29, 1997 Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance, to ensure Armenia’s safety.
