I call on the opposition to get familiarized with the report of the parliamentary committee investigating the reasons of and circumstances behind the April 2016 escalation. Andranik Kocharyan, a member of the majority "Civil Contract" Faction in the National Assembly (NA) of Armenia and Chair of the NA Standing Committee on Defense and Security, stated this Friday during the traditional briefings at the NA—and commenting on the respective statements by Tigran Abrahamyan, an MP from the opposition "With Honor" Faction in the parliament and a security expert.
Abrahamyan had said that during the rule of the incumbent Armenian authorities it is impossible to ensure an objective investigation of the 44-day Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) war last fall.
The ruling majority, however, does not agree with such a statement. The authorities have even stated their interest and readiness to conduct an impartial investigation.
