It has already been a long time since the Democratic Party of Armenia declared that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict may become a regional conflict. In this situation, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and the incumbent authorities must bring Armenian-Russian relations back to the level that they have been at throughout the past twenty years. This is what leader of the Democratic Party of Armenia Aram Sargsyan told reporters today.
“If the authorities recall that the allied state must provide assistance at difficult moments, yet start complaining about the allied state when the political situation is favorable, they must understand that the allied state may give an extremely painful response,” Sargsyan said, adding that if there are people who don’t understand this, they are simply fools and are acting against the interests of Armenia.
“As of today, no country can replace Russia and have the tremendous influence that Moscow has on in our region. The people of Armenia also need to understand this well. The incumbent authorities of Armenia are to blame for the anti-Russian moods in society. If Armenia wants to have friendly countries, it has to build friendly and cordial ties with them on a daily basis,” the political party leader stressed.
Sargsyan stated that President of Russia Vladimir Putin has always been in touch with Armenia’s political leadership during a tense situation, but this wasn’t the case this time.
