ArmInfo. Obviously, the world has become bipolar. And right now, in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, the United States and China are redistributing the Yalta world order created after the Second World War, the leader of the Republic party, former prime minister of Armenia Aram Sargsyan, expressed a similar opinion ArmInfo.
"This is done through political and economic wars between them. And Russia remains out of this game, at best, it is a substitute player. Armenia should be ready to such a redistribution of roles and fight for zones of influence in a bipolar world. The only way to do this is to strengthen sovereignty. China's restoration of the Great Silk Road is based on a political program with a powerful economic component, "he said.
According to the politician, the Silk Road is not just a road - it has extensive infrastructure, jobs that are beneficial to investors and the countries in which they are carried out, investments aimed at long-term return. In his opinion, Armenia has not yet grown to a similar level of perception of road construction - building a road does not mean just laying asphalt. Meanwhile, the development of Armenia is also impossible without a sense of global developments, readiness to send and receive messages.
Among these messages, Sargsyan singled out a statement by US Assistant Secretary of State George Kent about the inefficiency of many statements by Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov. The lack of mention of territorial integrity in the congratulation of US President Trump, dedicated to the Independence Day of Azerbaijan, mention of the eternity of Ararat and Yangtze on Chinese boxes with help for Armenia. Armenia should respond equally to such messages, which, according to the politician, are not a small thing, and changes in foreign policy should be programmatic.
Sargsyan noted that since the establishment of the Third Republic, its leadership has focused on solving two naturally interconnected problems: Artsakh and the economy. And each of the three presidents of Armenia, its current prime minister, tried to do it in their own way with their inherent mistakes and achievements. The former prime minister is convinced that not one of the Armenian presidents had any intention to sell Artsakh. Although one of the presidents tried to solve the problem of Artsakh at the expense of the territories of Armenia.
The former prime minister is convinced of the impossibility of selling Artsakh. In his opinion, this is an absurd fabricated lie constantly used by the fifth column of Armenia's strategic ally to pressure all four Armenian leaders and force them to make significant concessions. According to him, the sale of Artsakh is an illogical lie, invented and served by special services in order to divert attention from other problems and issues. , Sargsyan is convinced.
