YEREVAN. – Our problem is not only Azerbaijan; we have a problem with Turkey’s support of Azerbaijan, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan said during the pnael of the Munich Security Conference.
His remark came in response to the question of Ian Bremmer, president and founder of Eurasia Group, who asked about the relations between Russia and Turkey and their impact on Armenia.
“I know that our opportunities are increasing every year, because the world is beginning to understand how much the Armenians are tolerant and in what difficult geopolitical conditions they are living.
Our problem is not only Azerbaijan; we have a problem with Turkey’s support of Azerbaijan. And I have to state that Azerbaijan is lulling itself into a false sense of Armenia’s isolation. It is myth, nothing but myth, things stand otherwise. If Armenia had been isolated, it would not have boasted a higher average salary than Azerbaijan, which has so much oil, gas and other resources. I can cite other indicators as well, but I am confident that we can not just be isolated,” he said.
