The format of the meeting of Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev in Munich was nonsensical, taking into consideration the fact that such meetings wouldn’t be held even when international organizations didn’t have as big of an impact on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict as they do today. This is what President of Yerevan Press Club Boris Navasardyan told reporters today.
He noted that the agenda for the meeting had to be focused on two issues, including security and human rights. “In essence, there was no sense in historical excurses since the parties presented episode from unfavorable perspectives, and this goes to show that the debate between the two leaders was targeted at the peoples of their respective countries. It was important for Armenia, taking into consideration the upcoming constitutional amendments referendum, and it was important for Aliyev in order to mitigate the tension what with the post-election period in Azerbaijan and to strengthen his positions,” Navasardyan explained.
