ArmInfo. The Vice Speaker of the Armenian Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov made a statement regarding the latest developments on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, in Azerbaijan and Armenia. In the statement of Sharmazanov, in particular, it is noted: "While in Armenia we continue to divide the society into our own and others', black and white, Turkey and Azerbaijan intensified their efforts towards consolidating around the ideas of pan-Turkism, as evidenced by the escalation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border and the more assertive statements of Aliyev and Erdogan made during the 100th anniversary of the "liberation" of Baku. Aliyev once again voiced the thesis - "one nation, two states", stressing that Turkey and Azerbaijan should consolidate their fight against a single enemy, moreover, he stressed that the more powerful Turkey will be, the stronger Azerbaijan will be. Erdogan surpassed him, and, contrary to all international legal norms, stated that Turkey will continue the blockade of Armenia until the territories controlled by the Armenian side are returned. I think that the international community and the authorized structures should assess these statements of the leaders of the two countries, as well as the escalation of the situation on the Armenian- Azerbaijani border. Further silence of the international community will lead to an even more aggravated situation. "
As for the "threats" of the two leaders that the flags of Azerbaijan and Turkey will be flown in Stepanakert, Sharmazanov did not rule out such a development, but only if Ankara and Baku open their diplomatic missions in Artsakh and hoist their flags above them.
However, the Vice-Speaker stressed, in this situation we should not rely on the international community and plenipotentiary structures, we must consolidate ourselves and remain vigilant, not to focus on secondary problems, leaving aside the most topical issue - the issue of national security. "In the current situation, we must, as much as possible, soberly assess the situation, consolidate before the threat of an external enemy.
Azerbaijan and Turkey today are challenging not only Artsakh, but also Armenia, shooting at its border villages. And today, taking this into account, it is not time to divide society into "Nicholas" and Republicans, "black and white", "their own and others", revolutionaries and counter-revolutionaries. We must be united today, as never before, and Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan should appeal to the people for unity, as the first person of the state. He must reconsider his strategy of dividing society into his own and others'. Mr. Pashinyan - You are the premier of all Armenians, regardless of the sympathies of those or other layers to you, your team and your policy. In this fateful moment for Armenia and Artsakh, you must learn from the past, make a call for unity. You can do it, we will have new sardarapatas, no - we will suffer the same shameful defeat as in Kars 100 years ago, "Sharmazanov summed up.
