U.S., Armenia Extend Anti-WMD Cooperation Deal

The United States and Armenia agreed this week to extend a WMD nonproliferation cooperation deal that the countries signed in 2000, the ARMINFO News Agency reported (see GSN, Feb. 5).

The deal, which was set to expire in November, makes U.S. nonproliferation equipment and training available to Armenia in exchange for streamlining the Armenian visa entry process for U.S. experts.

The top U.S. and Armenian defense officials approved the extension, and lawmakers in Yerevan today followed suit, said Armenian Deputy Defense Minister Ara Nazaryan.

The term of the extension was not immediately known (ARMINFO News Agency, April 30).
