The former authorities are totally speculating the Artsakh issue. This is what head of the Bright Armenia faction of the National Assembly of Armenia Edmon Marukyan told journalists today.
When told that the talks over the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict are currently in a dangerous stage and a charge has been brought against Serzh Sargsyan on the background of those talks, Marukyan said the following: “The former authorities said Karabakh was in danger during the election campaign ahead of the parliamentary elections held exactly a year ago. The former authorities are totally speculating the issue of Artsakh. Now they say the talks are uncertain. We have been hearing this for the past thirty years.”
As far as the statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan is concerned, Marukyan said the following: “Azerbaijan’s tone, claims and plans aren’t new. The former authorities are simply manipulating this through their media outlets. I believe we Armenians are always in danger since we are in a semi-war state. Therefore, we have to do our homework well, improve the economy, strengthen the army and be ready for war.”
