The operation of Azerbaijan’s Gabala radar station was halted or suspended over the failure of Moscow and Baku to reach an agreement, Armenian Defense Minister said.
Dwelling on the rumors suggesting a similar station may be established in Armenia, Seyran Ohanyan said the issue must be discussed by RA and Russian leaderships.
“Armenia is not against it,” he told a press conference.
Military expert Davit Jamalyan, in turn, described possible construction of a new radar station in Armenia as unrealistic.
In conversation with a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, he said Russia will launch a new station in southern Krasnodar Region already in the first months of 2013 to replace the Gabala radar.
