Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has confirmed Armenia's intention to withdraw from the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the national portal "Adyrna" reports with reference to the TASS agency.

"We are going out, are you threatening me with this?" Everything is fine with us, we will solve it when we leave. What do you think is the next step, shall we return? Don't worry," Pashinyan said at the session of the Armenian parliament on Wednesday, responding to the speech of the opposition deputy about the need to leave the CSTO.

This statement was made after the prime minister accused the founders of the CSTO of planning a war against Armenia.

"Those who created the alliance, those who planned the war against us and Azerbaijan are to blame for all this," said Pashinyan.

Let's recall that in February, Pashinyan said in an interview to the French TV channel that Armenia has suspended the membership of the CSTO.
