Armenia: No Missiles

YEREVAN, Armenia -- Armenia has denied charges by rival Azerbaijan that it recently purchased missiles from China.

At a meeting Wednesday of defense ministers of several former Soviet republics, Armenian Defense Minister Vazgen Sargsyan called the allegation "nonsense."

Azerbaijan protested Tuesday that China had sold Armenia eight Typhoon missiles. The missiles have a range of 60 kilometers, Interfax reported.
