The Armenian authorities will consistently defend both the rights of the Armenians of Karabakh and the issue of determining its status. At the same time, peace will always be at the forefront, Nikol Pashinyan said during a government hour in parliament, answering questions from deputies from the ruling Civil Contract party.

He then turned his attention back to the criticism voiced by the opposition.

“Today the opposition accuses us of “we brought the war”. No, it was you who announced the war and then left. There was only one way to prevent a war - to agree to all the unacceptable preconditions and demands of Azerbaijan,” Pashinyan said.

The Prime Minister noted that "the war began back in 2016." Thus, the third president of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, personally announced from the rostrum of the parliament that the war could not be avoided.

“He bluntly stated that there is no need to have hopes that war can be avoided...We are accused of going to ensure peace at any cost. But no! Peace at any cost is no longer peace. Peace is given at the price of peace, and not at any price,” the PM noted.
