YEREVAN. – Davit Sanasaryan, the former head of the State Oversight Service of Armenia, has noted that he cannot support Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the matter of whether the Amulsar gold mine should resume operations.
“I strongly support Nikol Pashinyan in the fight against corruption, in bringing to account the ‘seed-stealing mice’ and all the officials who acted against the state, in maintaining sovereignty during external pressures, in preserving Artsakh’s integrity—and then, in making it an indivisible part of Armenia, and in developing a green economy [in Armenia],” Sanasaryan noted, in particular, on his Facebook page. “But I can’t support [Pashinyan] on the matter of the mine being operated against Armenia.
“[But] I declare with all responsibility: Once the prime minister changes his decision [regarding the Amulsar gold mine], I will support [him] and defend against the attacks by jackals.”
