Second part of the series of interviews, entitled "Let's speak honestly: Serzh Sargsyan on the April  War," with Armenia’s third President Serzh Sargsyan:
Did the April  war inquiry committee [of the parliament] find out the truth? What is it?
The truth is the following: In April 2016, our aggressive neighbor [Azerbaijan] attacked us and lost. Ever since 1994, these were the largest-scale military actions during which the adversary used almost all the weapons in its arsenal. But our army very quickly defended itself and struck so hard that our enemy retreated. They suffered heavy losses, their plans failed. And in such cases, the army deserves only praise, not accusation, not even criticism.
Was the objective of this [inquiry] committee political? Why did you decide to go to the session [of this committee]?
I was invited to the session of the committee. I had to go because I have absolutely nothing to hide. Even if the concerns were correct about the committee members, yes, I was obligated to go and tell the whole truth, and it had to be recorded. We will make a final conclusion when the inquiry committee sends its report to the National Assembly. Truth and common sense must be above all.
