Armenia and the United States will hold joint military exercises in Armenia on July 15-24, the Armenian Defence Ministry said Saturday.

The Eagle Partner 2024 exercise will focus on tasks related to peacekeeping missions and such drills with “partner countries” are regular, the ministry said.

Armenia, until recently Russia’s closest South Caucasus ally, has seen its ties with Moscow sour in recent years over what Yerevan sees as Russia’s failure to defend it from neighboring Azerbaijan.
