ArmInfo. Issues related to the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Armenia are non-negotiable,. Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia Alen Simonyan told journalists on October 4.
According to him, these three concepts are a "red" line for the country's authorities. Simonyan noted that the Armenian side in the negotiations with Azerbaijan, did not accept a single proposal from Baku, and there is not a single document on the negotiating table.
Meanwhile, the Haykakan Zhamana" daily, owned by the family of the head of the Armenian government Nikol Pashinyan, reported on the preconditions put forward by Azerbaijan to Armenia. "Call the daily and ask, I declare that there are no prerequisites," the Speaker said.
Speaking about regional players, including Russia, Simonyan noted that each state has its own interests in the region. And, as the speaker noted, how Armenia will be able to resist these interests in this situation is another question. "Today we are doing everything to the maximum," the NA President said.
He added that the issue of weapons not delivered to Armenia, despite the payment of hundreds of millions of dollars, may be related to the problems of the conflict in Ukraine. The Speaker noted that he would discuss this issue with his Russian partners during his visit to Moscow. Issues related to the CSTO, the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance between Armenia and Russia and use of its forces will also be discussed. Simonyan did not rule out the possibility that "the CSTO will decide to leave Armenia." "If there is no appropriate reaction from this body to what is happening on the borders of the country, this may be a reason for serious consideration for us, but we should not make sudden movements without understanding the consequences," the head of the Armenian parliament said.
He criticized the position of a number of politicians who question the peaceful agenda of the country's authorities. <What do they want? Eternal war? If there is someone who will offer a real option, we are open to any ideas. But I don't take initiatives resembling toasts seriously," Simonyan stressed.
