EU and UK express readiness to strengthen defense ties with Armenia

  • Armenia’s top diplomat held separate meetings with his American, European, and Russian counterparts.
  • An Armenia-Azerbaijan joint border commission convened for another round of talks, but again came away with no concrete results.
  • The European Union and United Kingdom each indicated they are ready to deepen defense cooperation with Armenia.
  • The rate of poverty in Armenia has declined this year — but so has the country’s median per-capita household income.
  • Yerevan took the rare step of calling an emergency meeting of a Moscow-led trade bloc amid an escalating crisis over a pileup of hundreds of Armenian trucks at a key border crossing with Russia.
