YEREVAN. – I believe that after everything that has happened, the Armenian side, especially our society, must get rid of fears and stop showing high sensitivity to the Karabakh (Artsakh) issue. Viktor Yengibaryan, an MP from the ruling My Step bloc, said this at Friday’s sitting of the National Assembly of Armenia, commenting on what is happening in connection with Artsakh ever since the 44-day war last fall.

According to him, Armenian political forces should stop playing with people's feelings. "This is a very delicate issue; and when the political forces manipulate it, it turns out that such a sensitive attitude—which we all have—towards this issue prevents us from pursuing a more rational policy," the lawmaker said.
