Deputy Minister: It is impossible in any way to ban the sale by  Russia of armament to Azerbaijan

ArmInfo. It is impossible in any way to ban the sale by Russia of armament to Azerbaijan. On September 10, Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia Shavarsh Kocharyan stated this in an interview with reporters in parliament.

"People often ask what kind of allied relations can be discussed in  this case. But on the other hand, Armenia also gets weapons at  incomparably lower prices. Moreover, we got varieties of weapons that  are exceptional in their kind," the Armenian diplomat said, adding  that what he said does not mean at all that Armenia does not see  problems in the issue of armament supplies to Azerbaijan. According  to him, this issue is periodically raised by Yerevan.

It should be noted that Russia is one of the largest suppliers of  weapons and military equipment to both Azerbaijan and Armenia. The  only difference is that Azerbaijan acquires weapons at market value,  and Armenia, being a member of the CSTO, purchases it at domestic  prices. We also note that over the past 5 years, Russia has provided  Armenia with three loans for the acquisition of weapons.
