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.
- 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.”
