YEREVAN, OCTOBER 25. ARMINFO. Russia is a key partner for Armenia, Armenian President Robert Kocharyan says in an interview to Euronews.
This does not however prevent the country from developing relations with the EU, the US and Iran. Armenia is searching for new guidelines, new situations, ways to preserve what has already been done by many generations. Besides there is spiritual closeness between Armenia and Russia to lose which would be very unwise, says Kocharyan.
A new geopolitical situation has been created after the collapse of the USSR with the post-Soviet republics still adjusting themselves to it. Russia is the strongest state of the area in both economic and military sense, says Kocharyan.
