The diplomatic relations between the countries date back to April 3, 1992. Since then, Armenia and Russia have signed 160-plus interstate, government-to-government, and department-to-department agreements and treaties in the political, economic, humanitarian, and security domains with the backbone being the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Security signed on August 29, 1997.
Russia’s 50 regions have trade ties with Armenia. Recently contacts in the political and military domains gained momentum.
Military cooperation kicked off on August 21, 1992 when the Armenian and Russian Presidents signed in Moscow a Treaty on the Legal Status of the Russian Armed Forces Stationed in Armenia. March 16, 1995 went down as the date on which the Presidents signed an Agreement on the Russian Military Base in Armenia.
In January 2002, an Agreement on Joint Planning of Troops Deployment for Joint Security came into force.
Military cooperation was under the auspices of the Collective Security Treaty of May 15, 1992 signed by Russia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. This domain was taken over by the Russian-Armenian Agreement for Development of Military and Technical Cooperation signed in Yerevan on June 25, 2013. The document clears the way for the partners to supply military equipment to each other in the same configuration and capabilities that either of the countries provides for its own armed forces.
Russia and Armenia run an Intergovernmental Committee on Military and Technical Cooperation. Established in 2006, the Committee has been working ever since.
Armenia hosts a representative office of Rostec, Russia’s state corporation, that also projects Rosoboronexport’s interests in the country. Telephone number of the office: (+37410) 54-37-81, 52-47-59, fax: (+37410) 54-37-81, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
