Expert: Our goal is not to fight GMOs, but to adopt laws that protect  the interests of Armenian farmers and consumers

ArmInfo. "Our goal should not be to fight the Monsanto company or other GMOs, but adopt laws that protect the interests of Armenian farmers and consumers," the head of  the information and analysis department for the food safety risk assessment of the Center said at a press conference on October 8. ecological-noospheric studies of the National Academy of Sciences, expert on food law issues David Pipoyan.  

Touching upon the public resonance over the possible entry of GMO giant Monsanto into the Armenian market, the expert stressed that her interest is due not to  the attractiveness of the Armenian market, but to the fact that our  country is not protected by law from the penetration of genetically  modified products into its territory. "Therefore, our problem is not  Monsanto, but legislation." We must pass a law banning the  importation of GMO products to the republic, "the expert said, adding  that after the creation of the new government, the Center headed by  him sent a letter to Prime Minister Karen Karapetian , to discuss the  situation and introduce legislative bans on the import of GMOs,  however, this letter remained unanswered.  He also noted that the  Center's efforts in 2012 from the Armenian market were seized GMO  products - tomatoes, corn and peppers.  At the same time, the expert  stressed that at the moment there is no unambiguous research that  GMOs are dangerous, there are different opinions, but the fact that  they can not be useful is a fact. "These products, as a rule, contain  genes that are not contained in natural products, it can cause an  allergic reaction. In addition, the territory where once genetically  modified products were grown, will be forever infected," Pipoyan  said.  The expert stressed that, according to the Armenian  legislation, there should be special marking on genetically modified  products. There are also indirect indications by which you can  calculate these products, for example, too smooth and artificial  lines on corn, etc. "But of course, 100% of the result can be given  exclusively by laboratory research," Pipoyan said.  Note that on  November 1, the efforts of the US Embassy in Armenia in Yerevan  hosted a presentation of the activities of Valmont and Monsanto. Both  companies are well known in the world market: the former is engaged  in the sale and maintenance of mechanized irrigation equipment, and  there are no complaints about it. The same can not be said about the  transnational corporation Monsanto - this company is engaged in the  production of transgenic seeds and poisons for their processing. And  then the charge d'affaires of the US Embassy in Armenia Rafik Mansur  marked the entry into the Armenian market of a whole presentation,  while Armenia banned the production of GMOs two years ago, but the  import of food containing genetically modified components has so far  been allowed in the presence of special markings. That is, the market  as such is not protected from such products, even if it appears on  the shelves with special markings.  However, in an interview with  journalists, Alexander Zvyagintsev, Sales Manager for Monsanto in the  CIS, assured that the company will not offer Armenian partners to  work with genetically modified products, since they "do not do this  in countries where it is prohibited." But for about 20 years now, the  company has been selling seeds in Armenia and advising farmers. In  turn, the US Embassy in Armenia reported that Monsanto has been  selling its products on the Armenian market since 2006. Speaking  about the objectives of presentation of Monsanto and Valmont  companies in Armenia (sale of irrigation equipment), the US Embassy  explains that the event was held in the context of US policy on  stimulating American investments in the Armenian economy. Meanwhile,  the authorized structures of Armenia are completely unaware of the  penetration of the Monsanto GMO products into the Armenian market and  the activities of other companies engaged in the production and sale  of genetically modified products. Neither in the Ministry of  Agriculture of Armenia nor in the State Security Service for the  supply of food ArmInfo were unable to give a clear answer as to  whether Monsanto is operating on the Armenian market. In both  structures it was only assumed that the company, if it is represented  on the Armenian market, it is most likely under a different brand.

During the investigation of the facts of the GMO giant's presence,  ArmInfo correspondents found out that there are no statistics in  Armenia about how many GMO products are entering the country's  market, and, moreover, there are no laboratory tests of these  products for safety. However, in a conversation with the  correspondent of ArmInfo the press secretary of the State Service for  Food Safety Nvard Arakelyan informed the optimistic news - in 2018  the structure intends to carry out laboratory analyzes of GMO  products entering the Armenian market as a priority. Earlier in the  conversation with the correspondent of ArmInfo the press secretary of  the Ministry of Agriculture Ani Smbatyan said that after public  resonance and publications in the media, Minister Ignaty Arakelyan  instructed to study the situation connected with the activities of  Monsanto in Armenia. Today she said that information on this matter  will be provided next week. Nevertheless, Smbatyan stressed that the  Ministry is in favor of the development of organic agriculture in  Armenia. "Deputy Minister of Agriculture of Armenia Armen Harutyunyan  also stressed this during a presentation organized by the US  Embassy," she said, however, stressing that there is no agreement on  cooperation between the Armenian Agriculture Ministry and Monsanto.  The topic of a possible entry into the Armenian market of the  American GMO giant was not left indifferent by the soloist of the  rock band System of a Down, Serge Tankian, who, in his Facebook page,  called on Armenia to "stay away" from the American company Monsanto.  In particular, he wrote: "Because of its policy, Monsanto has earned  a reputation in the United States and Europe for a" corporation of  evil. "Unlike in the United States, in Armenia, I have the  opportunity to enjoy the taste of organic, crunchy apples - a product  of long- term agricultural work. then it will be like this. "Thanks  to Monsanto, I can not find such apples in the US," Tankian writes.  Meanwhile, in late September, The Guardian published an expository  article that Monsanto officially spent about 300,000 to 400,000 euros  a year lobbying for its interests in the European Parliament.  An  internal correspondence was also made public, where the company's  employees discuss ways to better prevent the normal study of the  glyphosate pesticide and its recognition as dangerous, and correspond  with some American officials and scientists about it. Later it was  also discovered that the European organization EFSA, responsible for  product safety, cop ied its 2015 report on glyphosate from the  Monsanto 2012 authorship report.

Нашей целью является не борьба с ГМО-компаниями, а принятие законов, защищающих интересы армянских фермеров и потребителей. Логически верная постановка вопроса. К сожалению, осуществлению благих намерений мешают обљективные обстоятельства. Общество, говоря в общем и в частности, погрязло в трясине преследоования личных интересов отдельных лиц и дрязг. Мы пока что слишком слабы приняться принципиально решать подобные задачи. Система установившихся общественных отношений, при которой переплетенно все и вся перемалывает любое здравомыслие. Идет процесс глобализации. Имея целью быть чем-нибудь полезным для возможной дискуссии вокруг предметной темы, привожу ряд личных суждений. ГМО, если не ошибаюсь, имеют свойство успешно противостоять всевозможным вредителям сельхозпродукции. Те просто сторонятся всего этого. Если это так, то пища, состоящая из набора ГМО продуктов, игнорируется в т.ч. и кишечной микрофлорой животных и человека, а значит - усваивается, но не переваривается указанной микрофлорой, и без особой пользы выводится вон. К счастью, ГМО пока что не составляют значительной части нашей пищи. Кстати, продавцы продовольствия, также, как и их производители, видят в ГМО, не способным насыщать человеческие потребности в пище, источник дополнительной прибыли за счет повышенного спроса на продукты питания по указанной причине. Таким образом можно создавать ГМО дающие баснословные урожаи за счет интенсивного истощения почвы, а значит, ее деградации. Это, пожалуй представит интерес для бизнеса по переработке растений на биотопливо. Благо, подобная деятельность, при высоких ценах на нефть, дотируется на гос. уровне. Этот список порчи всего и всея - очень длинный.
