ArmInfo. It is impossible to give Artsakh, it is possible only to lose it as a result of war. To lose together with Syunik. Director of Ashkharh(Stepanakert) Strategic Researches Center, expert on military and national security issues Hrachya Arzumanyan expressed such an opinion to ArmInfo, commenting Edward Nalbandian's statement.
"Artsakh issue is settled for Armenian nation. That is why there is no need to discuss and even more to response in such an emotional way to MFA statements. Thus, it is necessary to put and solve issues of increasing defense possibilities of Armenian Armed Forces, efficiency of the system, national security, Armenian national identity and society in general", the analyst is assured.
On September 18 Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian at the Armenia-Diaspora forum, as the possible territorial concessions of the Armenian side, marked territories "in the transfer of which there will not be a threat to the security of Artsakh and will not be endangered by the final settlement of the conflict." "If I reveal other details, the negotiations will stop," the Minister said.
In this regard, the analyst called the society not to yield to and not allow to focus attention on energy taking, unreal problems. The only problem and threat to Armenia, which the Armenian people can influence, the analyst considers the state of the Armenian society, leading to large emigration. All the rest is just consequence.
Among the issues that are meaningful Arzumanyan points out the questions on how to change tendencies, force the power to change, find a replacement for it, how this replacement could begin to solve the problems of the Armenians. The analyst is convinced that certain forces consciously and fairly professionally consistently press the painful points of the Armenian people.
"Who destabilizes the Armenian society, what are the goals, what effect should be achieved as a result of this destabilization? Can it be avoided, or should we try to intercept and redirect the energy of society to other purposes?" These are the questions that we should all ask today," Arzumanyan said.
ArmInfo. All the territories around Artsakh are important in terms of ensuring its security, a return to the past in terms of borders and no status. This was the reaction of the press secretary of the NKR President Bako Sahakyan David Babayan to yesterday's statement of Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian that within the framework of the Karabakh settlement those territories will be returned, the refusal of which will not jeopardize the security of Nagorno- Karabakh.
