    Russia MFA: Armenia not attending CSTO PA meeting will not affect decision to create unified air defense system

    The absence of the Armenian delegation at the session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO PA) will not affect the decision to create a unified air defense system, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Aleksandr Pankin told reporters.

    "Their physical absence from participation does not greatly slow down the processes of agreement on the adoption of collective documents by other member states, which they join in many cases," Pankin said, answering the question whether Armenia's non-participation will affect the CSTO plans to create a unified air defense system.

    It became known earlier that the speaker of the Armenian parliament, Alen Simonyan will not attend the external session and the 16th plenary session of the CSTO PA Council to be held in Moscow on December 19.
