After the session, the President of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, the President of Russia, Dmitriy Medvedev, and the Secretary General of CSTO, Nikolay Bordyuzha, met with around 200 representatives of local and international press in Gallery One. The media representatives also used the press-center organized at the Cafesjian Center for the Arts.
