The Armenian authorities don’t rule out operation of the Amulsar gold mine. This is what Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure of Armenia Suren Papikyan said in response to deputies’ questions during today’s question-and-answer session with government officials in parliament.
According to him, the current goal of the authorities is to create conditions for additional investments, particularly in the mining industry.
“The government needs to revisit the opportunities for solving the current problems and make the necessary decisions. If those decisions are in Armenia’s interests, they will also imply an opportunity for operation of the Amulsar gold mine,” Papikyan explained.
Touching upon ecology, the minister stated that the government will make only balanced decisions that will be in the interests of Armenia.
