Edward Nalbandyan: “Armenia tried to be involved in Rio+20 process to its best extent”
Today the director of Noravank fund Gagik Harutyunyan mentioned the announcement made by OSCE Minsk co-chair countries governors during G-20 summit, noting that this one does not particularly differ from the previous announcements.
“Comparing the previous 2, 3 similar announcements it becomes obvious that the few changes were made and almost all of the announcements have the same definition. Anyhow, it should be understood that any negotiation is better than no negotiation at all”, pointed the speaker.
From G. Harutyunyan’s point of view, Azerbaijan has appeared to be in a complicated geopolitical situation, “The second front was opened for Azerbaijan. Unwillingly, it was involved in anti-Iranian activities”.
Discussing the regional developments G. Harutyunyan noted that US position is retreated and activeness on behalf of Russian position is observed. According to him, Turkey holds evident anti-Armenian politics, playing the role of the elder brother of Azerbaijan as well “Turkey-Azerbaijan, Armenia-Iran-Russia parts factors and the changes caused by them contribute to the crystallization of the region. It becomes obvious who wishes whose goodwill”.
Regarding the provocations made by Azerbaijan, G. Harutyunyan emphasized that our counterblow was adequate, “The death of the youth from two sides is tragic. But our counterblow was justified. It refers to 40-50 casualties from Azerbaijani side and this is the only way, taking into account the fact that the Azerbaijanian principally object to the snipers retreat from their positions”.
As for the upcoming developments, the director of Noravank does not expect serious improvements, optimistically hoping that the issue of Iran will not be aggreviated.
