Rumsfeld to Discuss Anti Terror Effort in Armenia

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Diplomatic sources in Armenia have announced that US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld will arrive in Armenia on December 15 as part of a regional tour intended to monitor the ongoing US-led military campaign in Afghanistan.

Rumsfeld is scheduled to meet with President Robert Kocharian and Defense Minister Serge Sarkisian to discuss issues related to Armenia’s cooperation with the anti-terror effort.

Armenia–like its immediate neighbors Georgia and Azerbaijan granted the US military use of their air space for the Afghanistan campaign–providing American warplanes based in Europe and Eastern Turkey with a corridor to Central Asia.
