Social Democrat Hunchakian Party Central Committee Chairman, Mr. Hagop Dikranian has condemned the downing of the Artsakh helicopter by Azerbaijan and insists the major incident in the conflict zone “is nothing more than an invitation to war.”

The vivid incident on November 12, which resulted in 3 servicemen of Karabakh military being killed, was the first of its kind since the ceasefire agreement was reached between Azerbaijan and Armenian forces, and was strongly condemned by Russian and Western authorities as an act of aggression deemed to escalate tension along the Line of Contact between the Artsakh-Azerbaijan and Armenia-Azerbaijan border.

Mr. Dikranian asserts that after such provocations, “Yerevan should immediately suspend its participation in the peace negotiation process until such time as the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic becomes a full participant of the talks.”

On behalf of the Hunchakian party, Dikranian also extended his deepest condolences to the families of the killed airmen and expressed hope that there would be fair retribution.
