The Treaty on Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance, signed between the Republic of Armenia and the Russian Federation (celebrating 25 years this August) and the joint Declaration on Allied Partnership, oriented towards the 21st century, form a well-established legal basis.
Today, the Armenian-Russian strategic cooperation stands out for a highly trustful dialogue at all levels, and effective cooperation in the military-technical, trade-economic and humanitarian spheres.
Our countries cooperate within the framework of the EEU, CSTO, CIS and other multilateral alliances.
We highly appreciate the Russian Federation's contributing to ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone and the mediation efforts of the Russian side, including within the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs, aimed at the political and diplomatic regulation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict."
