Armenia won’t take part in NATO’s Agile Spirit 2021 multinational military exercises: expert explains reasons

As for the possible political reasons, the experts mention the fact that according to the scenario of these exercises Russia, which is Armenia’s strategic ally, is sometimes chosen as a conventional opponent, and in this respect it’s obvious why Armenia is showing neutrality.

“Compared to the Noble Partner, the Agile Spirit exercises prepare a bit different scenarios, the drills are more in an offensive and concentrated direction, and it’s clear to everyone whom they consider as an opponent, therefore if there is a chance for participation within the Noble Partner, our side has always taken part because they are military doctors and other units”, he said, adding that first of all the war and its consequences limit the opportunities of the Armenian side as there are serious problems which need to be solved.
