Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that his country is not going to leave the Collective Security Treaty Organization, but fears that "CSTO will leave Armenia."

“There are fears in Armenia that the CSTO will leave Armenia. And my assessment is that, willing or not, the CSTO is leaving Armenia, and this worries us,” Pashinyan said at a press conference in Yerevan.

He also commented on the refusal of the quota offered to Armenia for the post of Deputy Secretary General of the CSTO. According to him, Yerevan will agree to this quota if it considers it to be a security factor.
