YEREVAN. – The two Swiss MPs deal with the fact of having visited Artsakh [Nagorno-Karabakh] and hence being in the Azerbaijani ‘black list’ and devoid of visiting Azerbaijan, with humor, co-chair of the Switzerland-Armenia Parliamentary Group Dominique de Buman said at a press conference on Friday.
He claims he is the head of a tourism union of Switzerland but he does not and is not able to travel all the states, so the fact that Azerbaijan included him in the ‘black list’ just made his work easier in choosing next destination.
The other co-chair of the Parliamentary Group Switzerland-Armenia Ueli Leuenberger also claimed he is not worried.
As a matter of fact, the Swiss MPs were aware of Azerbaijani disposition on Karabakh and the Swiss MFA, warned by Azerbaijan, asked them not to visit Artsakh. Yet, the MPs visited as they did want to learn the issue on the site.
