The Armenian government does not consider the evacuation of the Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Office of Armenia’s Prime Minister has told the state news agency Armenpress.
"The RA government does not consider the issue of the displacement of NK Armenians and believes that the rights of NK Armenians to live safely and with dignity in their homes should be guaranteed, but on the other hand, if it is deemed impossible for NK Armenians or part of them to stay, the necessary decisions will be made," the Prime Minister's Office said.
Representatives of the Armenia’s government are in constant contact with their counterparts in Nagorno-Karabakh regarding humanitarian issues, including the evacuation of those who wish to come to Armenia, the Prime Minister's Office added.
