Yesterday, representatives of the creative intelligentsia organized a march to the French Embassy in Armenia, and on Sunday to the Russian Embassy.
Actor Hrant Tokhatyan said that he had met with the Russian consul in Armenia, who said that he would try to organize a meeting with the ambassador in the near future. Tokhatyan said he hopes for the assistance of the ambassadors of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairing countries. "We will give the letter to the representative of the US Embassy in Armenia, earlier the letters were giwen to the representatives of the embassies of France and Russia," he said.
In the letters, the protesters note that a lot of time has passed since the signing of the trilateral agreement, however, there are prisoners of war in Azerbaijan to this day. They ask the ambassadors to convey the request of the Armenian intelligentsia to the leadership of these countries, to support the return of the Armenian prisoners of war to Armenia. "Everything concerning the return of territories is being carried out with amazing speed and accuracy. However, there is no news about our prisoners of war. Such a situation is unacceptable," Tokhatyan said. Therefore, representatives of the intelligentsia decided to raise this issue before representatives of the embassies of the Minsk Group co-chairing countries. Tokhatyan noted that this action cannot be politicized, since the only goal of the rally participants is to return home the Armenian prisoners of war as soon as possible.
Tokhatyan met with representatives of the US Embassy and handed them a letter. He said that the letter letter will be transmitted to US Ambassador to Armenia Lynne Tracy. "After the letter is handed over to the US Ambassador and she gets acquainted with it, we will be given an answer. We hope to meet with all the ambassadors of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries," the actor concluded.
