YEREVAN. – The National Assembly (NA) of Armenia Standing Committee on Defense and Security will organize hearings in near future regarding the process to settle the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) conflict, according to Zhoghovurd (People) newspaper.
“And as our sources claim, the main topic to be discussed will relate to the options for returning Artsakh to the negotiating table.
“And the hearings will take place in [Armenia’s capital city of] Yerevan, but there will also be invitees from Artsakh, from the parliament there.
“[But] in response to Zhoghovurd daily’s query, the chairman of this NA committee, MP of the ‘My Step’ Alliance Andranik Kocharyan, solely stated, ‘No comment.’
“We asked, ‘Do you deny that such a thing [the hearings] will happen?’ In response, Kocharyan said, ‘Everything is thought of proceeding from the interests of our country and to increase, strengthen the defense capacity of our country; everything is done in that direction,’” Zhoghovurd wrote.
