YEREVAN. – The Armenia-Israel Parliamentary Friendship Group delegation’s recent visit to Israel was quite hectic and productive.
Head of the delegation, ruling Republican Party of Armenia MP Gagik Minasyan, stated about the above-said at Friday’s press conference of the members of this friendship group.
“During the visit we had meetings not only with [Israeli] parliamentarians, but also with the defense minister of Israel, during which we discussed the Karabakh conflict settlement matters,” Minasyan said.
But he stressed that during the talk on this issue, the Israeli defense minister had quite frequently made expressions which were pro-Azerbaijani oriented. The Armenian side had repeatedly expressed itself at the Israeli parliament on this matter, pointing to the Azerbaijani position’s error in the Karabakh peace process.
At the same time, the Armenian MP announced that the Israeli side had promised to the Armenian delegation that it soon will present Israel’s clear position on the Karabakh conflict.
Members of the visiting Armenian parliamentary delegation had reflected also on Israel’s selling of arms to Azerbaijan, and which are used against the Armenian side, stressing that Tel Aviv’s respective stance remains incomprehensible for Yerevan, since the Israelis had to go through the same hardships as the Armenian people.
