Vigen Sargsyan: Armenian citizen`s appointment to CIS General  Secretary seat  both  can help solving the issues and complicate them

ArmInfo. The appointment of Armenian citizen to CIS General Secretary seat (Yuri Khachaturov) both can help solving the issues and complicate them, Armenian  Defense Minister stated this kind of opinion during the press-conference.

For instance, according to his opinion, Russian ex General Secretary  and Russian citizen Nikolay Boryudji's  statements  on Armenian or  Karabakh issue have another authority, Russian citizen's another.   "However we should remember that Khachaturov is not Armenian citizen  there, but an international bureaucrat, who must obey the limitations  and rules", the Minister said.

To remind, on April 14 the  CSTO member countries heads  have  approved Yuri Khachaturov to the  post of the CSTO Secretary General. 

To note, earlier it was decided to make the CSTO Secretary General's    mandate rotating - once every three years in the alphabetical order.    During the CSTO Collective Security Council's meeting in Yerevan on    14 Oct 2016, the participants were to name the Secretary General from    Armenia. However, on October 14, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan    said that the issue of the CSTO Secretary General was removed from   the agenda due to the absence of Kazakh President Nursultan    Nazarbayev. He added that the heads of the CSTO member states would    consider that issue at a meeting in St.  Petersburg in Dec 2016.    However, this issue was not addressed in St.  Petersburg either due  to   the absence of Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko.
