Russia may use its military base in Armenia to fight against ISIS

 

On May 6 Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated that Russian military base, deployed in Armenia, might be used in fight against ISIS.

 

“Unfortunately, ISIS has already established in the Middle East and Northern part of Africa without any intention to surrender, but we will definitely destroy them. Nevertheless, currently they are active in Afghanistan and especially its Northern part, areas adjacent to borders of our neighbors and allies. Special Rapid Response Units, provided by CSTO member states, as well as Russian bases, stationed in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia are always ready to respond correspondingly. We will stick to these priorities unless this “virus” is eliminated,” Lavrov said in an interview to MIR-24 TV.
