Eduard Sharmazanov: Turkey and Azerbaijan are key threats to South  Caucasus security 

ArmInfo. The key threats to the South Caucasus security are Azerbaijan and Turkey, Vice Speaker of Armenian Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov said at a meeting with Under-secretary of Human Rights and Cultural Pluralism of f Buenos Aires City Claudio Avruj.    

The press office of the Armenian Parliament has told ArmInfo that the  sides pointed out the importance of establishing close relations  between the two countries.    

Sharmazanov spoke of the situation in the South Caucasus, noting that  Armenia campaigns for peace and stability in the region. He also  touched on the Karabakh peace process, stressing that Karabakh's  independence is already a fait accompli. He said that unlike  Azerbaijan, Artsakh is developing its democracy. Sharmazanov noted  that Baku keeps conducting an anti-Armenian policy. In this light,  the politician also condemned the cultural genocide conducted by  Baku, and pointed out the demolition of thousands of rare Armenian  khachkars (cross-stones) in Jugha.    

He added that Turkey does not lag behind Azerbaijan. It continues  denying the Armenian Genocide and keeping Armenia in blockade. "It is  only a joint struggle against Turkey's denial policy that will be  able to prevent recurrence of new crimes against humanity.  Recognition of the Armenian Genocide is nothing but a fight for  protection of universal values," he stressed.
