YEREVAN (Armradio) — Azerbaijan continues to pursue an aggressive policy towards Armenia and Republic of Artsakh, Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Alen Simonyan said at the sitting of the sitting of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly in Yerevan.

“The intrusion of Azerbaijani units into the area of responsibility of Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno Karabakh is a matter of concern. We hope that representatives of the Russian peacekeeping corps, which play a key role in ensuring the security of the Armenian population of Nagorno Karabakh, will restore the status quo established by the November 9, 2020 trilateral statement,” the Speaker said.

He emphasized that the Republic of Armenia is committed to fulfilling all the agreements reached on November 9, 2020 and the subsequent trilateral statements of the Heads of State.

In the context of humanitarian issues created by the 44-day war, Alen Simonyan priorities the unconditional and immediate release of Armenian prisoners of war and other civilians held in Azerbaijan, as well as the preservation of the Armenian religious and cultural heritage in the territories under Azerbaijani control.

He emphasized that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is not a territorial dispute, but a matter of the right of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh to live safely in their homeland.

“We believe that the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs should play a key role in advancing the peace process in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. At the same time, we call on the Azerbaijani leadership not to undermine the steps taken to ensure stability and peace in the South Caucasus with their belligerent and expansionist rhetoric,” Alen Simonyan said.

“Armenia is committed to establishing peace and prosperity in the region and has repeatedly stated its readiness to start negotiations on normalization of relations with Azerbaijan. In order to achieve comprehensive peace, we supplemented the agenda with our proposals and handed them over to the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs,” the Speaker continued.

  1. Russia and the CSTO have betrayed Armenia in at least 3 ways:

    During the 2020 war.
    Not keeping the peace in Artsakh now.
    Allowing Azerbaijan to invade and occupy parts of southern Armenia.

    It could not be any clearer.

  2. We keep forgetting about Russian own agenda, and the Ukraine war was a proof of that. Who would have thought that Russian invasion to Ukraine would happen after Artsakh war? They were preparing for that war before even the start of Artsakh war.

    Russians didn’t want to be involved into 2 separate wars at the same time, first against Azerbaijan, Turkey, Pakistan, Israel, and mercenaries, and second against Ukraine and the west.

    Let’s not blame others for our lose. We should have been modernized our army many years ago with satellites, drones, heavy artillery, stare of the art communication methods, night vision equipment’s, …etc.

    Kocharian, Sarkisian and Catholicos Karekin trio are the ones who brought death and destruction to our nation.
