Armenia has decided not to participate in the upcoming meeting of Secretaries of Security Council of CIS States scheduled to be held on November 8 in Moscow, Russia. Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia, Armen Grigoryan, will not attend the meeting, as confirmed by his spokesperson, Tatevik Petrosyan.


In her announcement, Petrosyan stated, "The Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia, Armen Grigoryan, will not travel to Moscow and will not participate in the upcoming meeting of the Secretaries of Security Council of CIS states that is to take place on November 8 in Moscow, the capital of Russia."


The decision to abstain from the meeting comes at a time when tensions in the region have been a cause for concern. The Secretaries of Security Council of CIS States meeting serves as a platform for member countries to discuss regional security issues and cooperation. Armenia's absence from this meeting raises questions about the country's stance on regional security matters within the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).


The CIS, consisting of former Soviet republics, collaborates on various political, economic, and security-related issues. Armenia's choice to abstain from this particular gathering may reflect its current diplomatic priorities or concerns about the agenda of the meeting.


While the specific reasons for Armenia's decision to skip the meeting have not been officially stated, it underscores the complex geopolitical landscape in the region. Observers are closely monitoring developments, considering the potential implications for regional cooperation and security dynamics.
