NATO spoke about the prospects for Armenia's entry into the North Atlantic Alliance

The chairman of NATO's European Development Committee, Günther Fehlinger, is not an alliance employee. His views and statements have nothing to do with the position of the leadership of the North Atlantic bloc.

About it said to journalists of the newspaper Izvestia, the official representative of the military-political alliance of Western countries.

Mr. Fehlinger has no official affiliation with NATO

- he said.

The representative of the bloc also noted that the European Committee itself, despite its name, is not one of the structures of the North Atlantic Alliance.

NATO spoke about the prospects for Armenia's entry into the North Atlantic Alliance. There, according to an official of the organization, they do not plan to expand at the expense of Yerevan. In addition, Armenia did not apply for admission to NATO.

This is how the official representative of the alliance commented on the words of Fehlinger, who in early September said that Armenia should join the alliance as soon as possible.

The alliance noted that Yerevan, like other partners, independently decides at what level to develop relations with NATO.


Fehlinger made his resonant statement on September 4. On the same day, Deputy Foreign Minister of Armenia Vahan Kostanyan said that Yerevan is developing cooperation with the North Atlantic Alliance in various areas, intending to continue to do so.

Deputy head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Grushko two days later commented on Fehlinger’s words, calling them “big fantasies.”

      If they join the alliance, it will only be as a province of Turkey.

      NATO only needs from Armenia the ability to host a military base. They are not going to strengthen the Armenian army.

        I am not convinced that Yerevan, in addition to the problems that it already has with Baku, “in the context of NATO,” also needs BIG problems with Tehran...

    At what level to develop?
    Apparently, at the level of Ukraine.
    Do they decide for themselves? Well, this is a rhetorical question...

    Well, nothing surprising, but they won’t have a chance to join NATO if they don’t give up their territorial claims

    To hell with your drawbar, so that your neck doesn’t bend.
    The “Great Armenian Army” is a glorious replacement for the “Great Ukrainian Army”...
    Don’t strain your NATO in attempts at joint defense...

    It seems that there was already a precedent when the military delegations of Armenia and Azerbaijan ended up together in NATO at the same base. A stupid person should not accept Armenia and Azerbaijan into NATO. Someone in the exercises will then fire combat weapons at real targets.

      Azerbaijan will not agree. I. Aliyev has been the Chairman of the Non-Aligned Movement since 2019.
      By the way, thanks to him, we, Russia, have been an observer country in this respected international organization since 2021.

    Türkiye will NEVER agree to Armenia joining NATO. Even if Pashinyan’s government makes a “trick with its ears” and submits an application without a referendum and contrary to the opinion of the people. Just like the Montenegrin authorities did.

    On the prospects for Armenia's accession to the North Atlantic Alliance -

    ***
    — Ukraine (what’s left of it) can join NATO as part of Poland,
    and Armenia is part of Turkey...

    History teaches Armenians nothing. So Ukraine, too, was eagerly planning to join NATO. Georgia is the same. And what did all this lead to? Did the Armenians fill their brains with cognac or something, well, you have to think

    An even more problematic client than the Outskirts, and I imagined under what conditions Turkey would approve this entry. And this, for a second, is a prerequisite. So the initiative should only be welcomed - NATO has set a course for self-destruction

    They will create some kind of sluggish
    a military conflict on the territory of Karabakh or Armenia itself and they will not see NATO, just like Ukraine.

    another verbal feint (intervention).
    having its own goals and objectives for a certain period.
    but, in general, the trajectory of movement is clear and the main thing is that under “this” (cutting) - they will provide one kind of assistance or another.

    ...and George has already been accepted into the country... this mongrel is so willing to lick all the genitals of the West... and then there are the Pashinyans... idiots.. in short, the Armenians will become citizens of either the Ezers or the Turks

    The number of Armenians in Russia is 1,5 million, in Armenia itself there are 3 million, and 10 million in the West. So they have been in NATO for a long time and serve in NATO troops. And now, during exercises in Armenia with the United States, US military personnel may be Armenians by nationality. Yes

    The Sultan will be for this introduction with both hands. And most importantly, then the Azerbaijanis will definitely not have a chance if the Armenians are accepted.

    The question is different. Why did the local princes and lords of the territory of the Republic of Ingushetia suddenly decide that they are truly sovereign? And our wretched and mediocre self-proclaimed new nobles, for some reason, having squandered and rejected what our great ancestors had collected for centuries, suddenly took the position of passive observers, regardless of the interests of their Fatherland. It seems that the decrepit “vertical” of our semi-feudal inherited class society, assembled according to Sorov’s manuals from random people, does not meet modern demands, is unable to adequately respond and proactively creatively solve emerging problems.

    We should make sure that the Armenians who are in Russia go to their historical homeland, because they love it very much.
    Maybe after this Armenia will change its mind about joining NATO.

    They won’t be accepted into NATO, but it seems that we fell in love with Armenia, just like Ukraine in our time.
    I won’t be surprised that soon we will be asked from Gyumri and Yerevan

      Even if they ask... What, exactly, did we forget there?
      We must meet the wishes of the Armenian people for suicide - we ourselves must announce the departure of not only the peacekeeping contingent, but also our base. It seems that it no longer achieves any strategic goals. The base was completely surrounded by enemies, enemies and non-allies. What's the point of staying there? And the Armenian people will be very pleased - with the departure of the Russians, they themselves, as a people, will simply disappear from their historical homeland. They will be like Jews without Israel.

    Yes, I’m tired of repeating simple truths: there is Turkey, which doesn’t even allow Sweden into NATO, so where does Armenia come from? In addition, Turkey and Azerbaijan have their own plans for the territory of Armenia, in particular for the same Zangezur corridor. It will be much more difficult to occupy it if Armenia becomes a NATO member. And in general, Armenia in NATO is a complete hemorrhoid both for Azerbaijan and for its ally Turkey. This means that Armenia will not be in NATO. Moreover, in geopolitical terms, the country is worthless for NATO. The area is small. It has no border with the Russian Federation, nor access to the sea. There is no oil or gas there. You don't even hear about rare earth metals. The country, which is also poor, is also practically dead militarily. This means he will be a freeloader. Who needs it?
    The Armenians will most likely seek to bilaterally drag American or French military bases onto their territory. But the French are unlikely to agree to this. They will be afraid of Turkey. And in general they are just crowing. But the Americans will easily be dragged in. Pashinyan was given this task during his recruitment and subsequent bringing to power. In addition to other tasks regarding the collapse of the CSTO. This is a double benefit for Americans. They are thereby straining Russia and Iran, which borders Armenia.
