On the other hand, we recognize that every state has the right to supply weapons to the country, it considers necessary to do. The content of the note was a request that Russia, supplying weapons to Armenia, takes into account that these weapons should not be in the occupied Azerbaijani territories. There is a rule the end user in these supplies. If the end-user was Armenia, the issue would not go beyond the framework of bilateral relations between Moscow and Yerevan. And when the armory is in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, it is already a different matter,"- Foreign Minister said.
