Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov discussed cooperation on international platforms during a meeting held Wednesday on the sidelines of the United National General Assembly, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The parties discussed a number of pressing issues on the bilateral and regional agenda. Particular attention was paid to Russian-Armenian cooperation within international forums.

Russia has expressed its concern over charges brought against the Secretary-General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, Yuri Khachaturov, who has been indicted in Armenia of breaching the constitutional order in relation to the deadly post-election protests on March 1, 2008 when eight civilians and two police offers were killed in a standoff.

In earlier statements, Lavrov has personally chided what he called the “political” judicial proceedings against Khachaturov, who has been free on bail and allowed to travel to Russia to oversee his duties at the CSTO.

    Discuss the 3 soldiers killed in one week! Never mind this endless Russian promises of prosperity and cooperation. We want to see results now! Let Lavrov be concerned about the lives of Armenians instead of protecting criminal oligarchs. Where is Pashinyan when it comes to Armenian security and interests??

    Thanks to the RUSSIAN interference in Syria few years ago,,, the killing of Christians stopped in Syria and until today Armenians are safer in Syria. Thank you Russia….
    Armenia has delivered thousands of LAVROV’s to Russia.. Russia’s Armenians must not allow Putin to forget about Armenia’s present and past cooperation and sacrifices for Russia..

    Armenian Foreign Minister and his Russian counterpart should first discuss Russia’s commitment to annul all Bolshevik Era treaties with the Turkish Republic and any agreements that led to the gifting of Armenian lands to Azerbaijan and Georgia. It’s Russia’s duty to help the restoration of the Wilsonian Armenia.
