A week before election – SecNav Ray Mabus visits … Armenia

*Editors note – Not that there is anything wrong with visiting Armenia, just odd timing.

Armenia’s Defense Minsiter Seyran Ohanian on Monday met with the US Secretary of Navy Ray Mabus, discussing with him regional and global security issues and opportunities for greater cooperation. The meeting was followed by a joint press conference.

“The military cooperation between Armenia and the United States is developing dynamically. The relations between Armenian and American defense agencies have been special in 2011-2012; there have been a number of reciprocal visits and consultations,” Ohanian told reporters.

“The current visit proves that relations between the two countries in the field of defense are in a high level and tend to develop,” added Ohanian.
