Reforms

Armenia is actively participating in the discussions of the CIS,
OSCE and UN reforms and has its concrete positions. Vartan Oskanian
doesn't agree that the CIS is about to collapse as a structure. At
the CIS Summit in Kazan, Armenia joined the other states and voted
for Kazakhstan's candidacy for the position of the country in chair
of the OSCE in 2009. In response to our question why Armenia votes
for a country that still has a pro-Azeri orientation in the Nagorno
Karabakh issue, Mr. Oskanian said that Armenia wasn't fully siding
with Kazakhstan and when the time comes and the issue is discussed,
our country will announce its concrete position. "Kazakhstan's position
in the Nagorno Karabakh issue has never been neutral till now," Mr.

Oskanian said.

Armenia won't be represented on the level of the president at the
UN General Assembly, this year, too. RA Prime Minister will lead the
Armenian delegation, while Vartan Oskanian will accompany him.
