YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 30, ARMENPRESS: The armed forces of Armenia and
Nagorno Karabakh are ready to give proper response to any aggression
by Azerbaijan, according to Gagik Melikyan, deputy of RA NA Armenian
Republican Party faction. He said at a press conference today that
the Russian military base, located in Armenia, is another restraint
for the Azerbaijani warlike statements and diversions.

Though the Nagorno Karabakh is not involved in the prolonged agreement
on presence of military bases, this does not mean the security of NK
will not be ensured, the deputy said. He says by signing the agreement
Armenia got a warrant for its security, and Russia strengthened its
presence in the South Caucasus.

As to the 2012 parliamentary elections of Armenia, Gagik Melikyan said
after each election ARP gets ready for the next one. 'We get ready for
elections by our everyday activities. We think that we will register
successful results in the next election, too,' the deputy said.
