Expert: Erik Grigoryan`s resignation may be related to the mining sector
 Wednesday, May 6 2020 11:34

ArmInfo. Erik Grigoryan's resignation from the post of Minister of Nature Protection of Armenia may be related to the mining sector. This opinion was expressed by Inga Zarafyan, head of the EcoLur NGO, in an interview with ArmInfo.   The expert noted that the mining sector in Armenia has been under criticism of the environmental community for many years. Over the years, it has been repeatedly pointed out that in the mining industry the superpowers are involved, including the state leaders. After the "velvet revolution", strong changes and new processes began in this sector, which affected, in particular, Zangezur Copper Molybdenum Combine  and the Amulsar deposit. The redistribution of property, litigation and scandals, as well as the uncertainty in implementation of such large projects as, for example, the Teghout field development turned out, according to Zarafyan, to be a too heavy burden for the former minister. "Other sectors subordinate to the ministry in cannot be compared with the mining field in financial, economic and strategic terms," she noted.  To recall, on May 5, the President of Armenia signed a decree on the dismissal of the Minister of Nature Protection Erik Grigoryan. According to media reports, Grigoryan personally resigned.
