Abstract : Given the recent worldwide political developments of nations, Armenia's future involvement in peacekeeping and multinational operations requires constant analysis of the events, facts, processes, and plans of the key actors in the region. The research includes how Armenia, as a small country, should take advantage of unique national capabilities and prioritize the resources for integration in multinational formations in accordance with existing geopolitical situation and planning considerations. Armenia's participation in multinational operations must outweigh the possible disadvantages and meet the objectives of the national security strategy, and the domestic and foreign policy. Meanwhile, taking into consideration certain political, military, and regional factors, Armenia must balance its complementary foreign policy and cooperation with the West and Russia.
