YEREVAN — NATO Liaison Officer to the South Caucasus Region, William Lahue has stressed the importance of Armenia-NATO relations, calling them unique.

“Armenia is the only CSTO member state which is involved in the NATO-led international peacekeeping missions. It indicates that NATO respects its partners’ sovereign decisions”, stated William Lahue during a press conference in Yerevan.

According to Lahue, NATO builds relations with Armenia on the basis of partnership interests, rather than a competitive basis, and the aim of Armenia-NATO cooperation is to contribute to peace and stability not only in the region, but also around the world.

“We are not only going to maintain the achieved in Armenia-NATO relations but we are seeking for new areas of cooperation. As far as relations between NATO and its partners are concerned, it’s important to remember that it’s the partner states that determine the level of their involvement”, noted William Lahue

“Armenia makes full use of all the NATO’s tools meant for its partners. Armenian peacekeepers’ participation in the NATO-led missions is a vivid example of it”, said William Lahue.
