The current authorities inherited a very good situation in the negotiation process on Karabakh, Armenia's ex-president Robert Kocharyan told the Armenian TV channel.

"During these two and a half years, have you heard at least one truthful word from this government? I did not," the ex-president noted.

"They got a very good situation in the negotiation process. It was simply necessary not to start from scratch, but to strengthen the St. Petersburg and Vienna agreements, which presupposed exactly preventive measures to prevent war. And not to conclude any dubious agreements in any elevators. From this point of view, he received a very good legacy both in the negotiation process and in the army. Simply, it was necessary not to change the agreements that were outlined, for example, for anti-aircraft systems, but to implement the existing agreements, and deepen them even more, add something else."

Asked whether there was treason in the fall of Shushi, Kocharyan noted: “The bigger question is how they ended up in the vicinity of Shushi," Kocharyan wonders.

"In connection with Shushi, I have many questions and not a single answer. Not a single military expert can also understand what happened there, and I do not think that now we are able to find out, as long as this power remains in power," he added.

"Do you want to know the truth? This means that this power must leave, and only in this case, it is the military themselves who must tell the truth."

Kocharyan noted that the criminal case initiated against him, and his detention are connected with the Artsakh issue.
