One day later, Bolton visited Armenia to meet acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian and discuss the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. I attach great importance to key strategic and security issues of mutual interest, including the USA policy in terms of Iran, Russia and Syria, as well as this opportunity to examine our common efforts on increasing regional stability.

U.S. National security adviser John Bolton gestures as he speaks to the media after his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Russia, Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018. And we are ready to take advantage of this opportunity, " Pashinian wrote on his Facebook page on October 25.

Bolton said those "current circumstances highlight" the importance of Armenia and Azerbaijan "finding a mutually satisfactory agreement to the Nagorno-Karabakh issue". The presence of Armenian troops in the occupied lands of Azerbaijan proves that Armenia is the responsible side. The announcement by Bolton that the USA was willing to sell arms to Armenia in order to discourage arms purchases from Russia was unprecedented, with Bolton calling Russian arms sales to both Armenia and Azerbaijan as destabilizing the region.

Bolton also said the Trump administration wants to "look at" possibilities of weapons sales to Armenia that would not violate restrictions the U.S. Congress has imposed.

"As I have told the Prime Minister if the issue is to choose between Russian and American military equipment, we would have chosen the latter". "So I think conversation between the government of Armenia and the United States is going to be very important". Russian Federation has a military base in Armenia and provided the overwhelming bulk of its weapons, but it also has been the principal arms supplier for Azerbaijan. "After Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, there was a very long process of internal contradictions in Washington, due to which the American foreign policy was very uncertain, but according to the State Department representative's statement, we see that this period is over".
