ArmInfo.The State Secretary of the Republic of Artsakh, the world-famous businessman and social entrepreneur Ruben Vardanyan said that he did not really understand the reasons why he should leave the region.
In an interview with the "ChEZ" program of the RBC TV channel, Vardanyan commented on today's statement by Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov that the businessman should leave the region, since his activities "are of a criminal and adventurous nature." , Vardanyan said.
He also commened Yerevan's refusal from the trilateral meeting on Karabakh in Moscow. When asked by the journalist, Vardanyan replied that it was "the decision of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia and, probably, the Prime Minister of Armenia." .
According to Vardanyan, the Nagorno-Karabakh side agreed to the decision to resolve the situation in the Lachin corridor, which was proposed by the Russian peacekeepers. "But the Azerbaijani side categorically refused this. Another thing is that before that there were road closures from the Azerbaijani side, blocking the access of experts>, he said. Vardanyan also assessed the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh as a "full- fledged humanitarian crisis", since the "environmental activists" who blocked the corridor connecting the region with Armenia let only the cars of the Red Cross and Russian peacekeepers pass. , he said. RBC recalled that in December, the road through the Lachin corridor was blocked by unknown persons from Azerbaijan, who introduced themselves as environmental activists, they demanded access to the mines located in the border area for "inspection" from Azerbaijan. The Russian Defense Ministry announced later negotiations with Baku on the resumption of car traffic along the corridor. Dissatisfaction with the activities of the Russian peacekeepers, who, in their opinion, could not ensure unhindered movement along the highway, was expressed by the Armenian authorities. They refused to send a delegation to Moscow. As a result, Sergei Lavrov today met only with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov.
