Ukraine Rejects Reports Of Selling Missile Systems To Armenia

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has described as a provocation media reports in Azerbaijan alleging that Ukraine sold multiple rocket launchers and mobile missile systems to Armenia in 2011.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleksandr Dykusarov said at a press briefing on August 14 that Ukraine had been strictly observing the international obligations assumed before the UN and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, as well as national legislation.

The self-proclaimed Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh has not been recognized by any other country.
