Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov called on Washington to refrain from insinuations leading to an artificial increase in anti-Russian sentiment in Armenia, Report informs via news.am.
“Such insinuations from US officials are outrageous. The Americans, in fact, are repeating the unconstructive public statements of some Armenian politicians who are trying to renounce responsibility for their own failures in domestic and foreign policy,” the diplomat noted, commenting on the statements of US administration representatives that the Russian Federation is an unreliable security partner for Armenia.
According to him, Russia has been and remains a reliable ally of Armenia.
“We call on Washington to refrain from extremely dangerous words and actions that lead to an artificial increase in anti-Russian sentiment in Armenia. Such accusations only indicate that the goal of the United States and its allies is not to normalize the situation and ensure the peaceful development of the South Caucasus, but to cause strategic damage to Russia,” he said.
