The “3+3+ format contains risks for Armenia. This is what deputy of the opposition “With Honor” faction of the National Assembly of Armenia Tigran Abrahamyan told reporters today.
Abrahamyan said there is a fear that Turkey and Azerbaijan will do everything possible to change the format of the Chairmanship of the OSCE Minsk Group and put the Artsakh issue in the “3+3” format.
“As a member state of the OSCE Minsk Group, Turkey has always tried to obtain the status of Co-Chair, which Armenia was against. Ankara is trying to expand its presence in the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in this way now. Armenia’s mishaps continue even after the statement signed on November 9, 2020. Armenia will face new threats. In these conditions, Armenia doesn’t have a government that would be capable of taking adequate actions. This government can’t lead a pro-Armenian policy and isn’t showing the appropriate will, including with respect to the issues related to borders, Artsakh, etc.,” he emphasized.
The “3+3” format implies the participation of Armenia, Russia, Iran, Georgia, Turkey and Azerbaijan.
