ArmInfo. It is Former President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan, who will answer the last question about the April war. Chairman of the RA National Assembly Standing Committee on Defense and Security Andranik Kocharyan stated this in an interview with the RFE/RL's Armenian Service.
"The last question should be asked to the person who made the most important decision, that is, the that time Supreme Commander," Kocharyan said, speaking of the possibility of summoning Sargsyan at one of the Commission's sessions. "We need to understand when and how he was informed about the current situation, what order was received by the heads of the relevant structures, and how quickly this order was executed. Who else can we ask these questions?", he said.
Kocharyan expressed confidence that if necessary, Sargsyan would not refuse to come to the Committee. According to him, a person who refused to participate in the work of the Commission will automatically take on a huge load of suspicion. "No one can do such a thing today", he emphasized, adding that he would like to hear explanations from Mikayel Harutyunyan, who in 2016 held the post of chief military inspector under the President of Armenia. The parliamentary commission to investigate the circumstances of the April war in Karabakh was established in June this year. The Commission included representatives of all factions of the National Assembly. The purpose of her work is to identify possible errors, shortcomings or inaction on the part of the then authorities during the aforementioned period of aggravation of the situation at the border, which led to the death of more than 100 Armenian soldiers.
