Armenia's striving to become an observer in the Shanghai Cooperation
Organization will allow it to expand and diversify its international
political and trade relations, Eduard Sharmazanov, Vice Speaker of
the Armenian National Assembly said on October 1.

Moreover, at the recent session of the Collective Security Treaty
Organization in Sochi, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan addressed
specific messages to both the local and foreign audience. In
particular, further strengthening of the relations with the CSTO stems
from the positions of sovereignty and security of Armenia. Armenia's
task number one is to ensure the security of Artsakh and its
international recognition. In addition, Armenia does not admit some
CSTO member states' unilateral position about the Nagorno-Karabakh
conflict settlement. "It is indisputable that the security and
independence of Artsakh cannot be an object of political compromise",
said Sharmazanov.
