Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan rejected Baku’s accusations on French military supply to Armenia in his interview with France 24. 

Meeting between Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Munich on February 17 with the mediation of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz within the framework of the Munich Security Conference was the first between the two leaders since last July, was held to discuss the ongoing conflict between the two countries and the peace deal that continues to linger. 

In his interview with France 24, Armenian PM claimed that Azerbaijan was not adhering to the principles needed to clinch a long-term peace treaty. 

Concerning France’s military aid to his country, the Prime Minister rejected Baku’s accusations. France’s Le Figaro daily and AFP news agency reported that the three radars as well as French night-vision equipment will be shipped to Armenia on Thursday. However, The Armenian Defense Ministry declined to comment on those reports.

Note that defense ministers of France and Armenia signed in October a “letter of intent” on the future delivery of French short-range surface-to-air missiles to Armenia. It emerged afterwards that France will also supply a total of 50 armored personnel carriers. The first batch of 24 Bastion vehicles apparently bound for Armenia was spotted in the Georgian port of Poti in December.
