Aid through Aghdam or emigration from Nagorno-Karabakh; this is  authorities` message to Artsakh people. Babayan offers his solution

ArmInfo.The authorities of Nagorno-Karabakh are leading the people to destruction. This opinion  is shared by the head of the Nagorno-Karabakh parliamentary party  "United Motherland" Samvel Babayan, who offers a "comprehensive  solution" to the crisis in the Lachin (Berdzor) corridor.

Babayan, in an interview with the RFE/RL's Armenian Service , said  that the information that he and his party support Azerbaijan's  proposal to deliver humanitarian goods from Aghdam to Nagorno  Karabakh is not true.

According to him, their position is that, within the framework of a  package solution, goods should be delivered to Nagorno-Karabakh  simultaneously through the Lachin corridor and Aghdam. In addition,  the package should also reflect the issue of the status of  Nagorno-Karabakh, that is, it should be clear where they are going.  "Otherwise, the problem will not be solved by passing several trucks  with cargo," he said.

<It is necessary to give a comprehensive solution to this problem. In  other words, it should not turn out that one car passes through  Aghdam in a couple of days, then they close this road again, or let  10 cars pass through Lachin, this will not solve the problem. At that  meeting, we clearly formulated our point of view: we should get a  common comprehensive solution: where are we going, what are we doing,  well, they let 10 cars pass, we ate, and then what?  What will be the  next step?> Babayan asked.

To the question whether the package should also include the issue  related to the status of Nagorno-Karabakh, Babayan answered as  follows: "[It should include] everything, of course, at least general  principles must be formulated." To a clarifying question whether the  Azerbaijani side would agree to this, Babayan replied: "I think yes,  it will agree." Babayan mentioned that in the near future he will  present his approaches to the public, consisting of about 20  provisions, which are still under development.

The head of the second-largest political force of the  Nagorno-Karabakh parliament noted that he proposed that the political  forces jointly develop these steps, obtain public consent, and then  begin to implement them. However, according to Babayan, no one  accepted his proposal. "As a result, today they are at an impasse and  blame each other," he said.

<Let's wait another 7 days, let's see who they will shift the  responsibility to. They should stand up and say: "Dear people, we  have no choice, do we need to migrate?" Babayan said.

According to the Karabakh politician, the government of  Nagorno-Karabakh is now sending the following message:  either they  accept aid through Aghdam, integrate with Azerbaijan, or leave  Nagorno-Karabakh. As Babayan noted, the authorities do not understand  that there is another solution besides this.

<This is how I see what the current government of Nagorno-Karabakh is  doing: it is creating a situation in which assistance through Agdam  is being discussed, or an emigration from Karabakh is being  considered. Women, children will be taken out first, in short, they  arrange a circus, not realizing that they are not solving any  problem. They lead their people to destruction, that's all>, Babayan  said.

When asked whether the government is now raising the issue in such a  way that either we accept Aghdam or we will have to leave, Babayan  replied: "I don't know in which  way they are raising the issue now,  but they say something like this. They will announce it in a more  official form soon>.
