Change in Yerevan`s foreign policy vector to lead to expected  counteraction from Moscow

Change in Yerevan`s foreign policy vector to lead to expected  counteraction from Moscow

ArmInfo.The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court has been ratified by many countries,  including Georgia and Tajikistan. member of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia from the "Armenia" opposition faction Artur Khachatryan told reporters on October 3.

At the same time, according to him, the document has not been  ratified by Russia, the USA, China and a number of other states. The  MP recalled the so-called "constructive negotiations" between Prime  Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and President of  Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, the peace agenda that representatives of the  RA government so often talk about. "Do you seriously think that after  all this the Armenian authorities will appeal to the ICC? Are you  kidding me? All these justifications are simply ridiculous,"  Khachatryan emphasized.

He noted that with the ratification of the document, Yerevan took a  more than unfriendly step towards Russia. "But these are all parts of  the same chain, both the trip to Kiev and the political anti-Russian  statements, and we, the people, will bear the consequences of all  these actions. Problems have already arisen at the Upper Lars  checkpoint even for transit trucks from Armenia," the oppositionist  noted, adding that a change in the foreign policy vector by Yerevan  will lead to the expected counteraction from Moscow, whose

is  very significant, especially if we recall the events in Georgia in  2008. In the case of Armenia, the MP continued, we may be talking  about additional risks associated with energy.
