ArmInfo.Armenia has repeatedly expressed its position regarding the sale of arms to  Russia to Azerbaijan, including during bilateral meetings with Russian counterparts.  Vice-Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov said this at a press conference in Yerevan on July 12, referring to reports of Russia's new arms supplies to Azerbaijan.  Azerbaijan is not a state that can sell arms, it is necessary to sell weapons to those countries that intend to use it for defense purposes," Sharmazanov said. At the same time, he added that his position on this issue has not changed.

At the same time, he expressed the conviction that this fact should  not obstruct the development of the Armenian-Russian strategic  relations. He called not to consider the Armenian-Russian relations  in the prism of Russian-Azerbaijani. "We need to continue to develop  our allied relations with Russia, based on our interests," the vice  speaker of the Armenian parliament concluded.

It should be noted that on July 10 it became known that Russia was  supplying the next batch of weapons to Azerbaijan. Shells, missiles  and other military equipment were delivered to the Baku port in large  numbers for accurate and extensive destruction of military equipment,  engineering structures, manpower and other enemy facilities with  appropriate missile and artillery systems. According to reports,  among the delivered weapons is a heavy flamethrower system TOS-1A  . In the second decade of June, the Ministry of Defense  of Azerbaijan reported that, in accordance with the intergovernmental  agreement and within the framework of successfully developing  military-technical cooperation between Azerbaijan and Russia, the  planned delivery of modern weapons was carried out, which will  strengthen the combat and maneuver capabilities of the advanced units  of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan to defeat armored vehicles ,  Engineering and fortification structures, low-speed air targets,  manpower and other enemy objects, including and a self-propelled  anti-tank missile system
