“As a result of April military activities we had unacceptable territorial losses and an open door of territorial extradition. This is not only a consequence of April war but also the fact that the Armenian side failed to conduct an effective foreign policy for years,” Arman Melikyan, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary and NKR Former Foreign Minister, said.

“The sleepy approach to the fate of our country led to the fact that we are in an absolutely unacceptable situation for the Armenian interests, that is getting an uncertain status in exchange of specific areas. If the Armenian authorities do not act now, many sad events lay ahead for us,” the speaker said. 

What concerns Serj Sargsyan’s announcement about the loss of 800hec territories, Arman Melikyan said that the had of a state had no right to make such an announcement.  

“In the best case we can consider this a statement of military man for whom territories can be extraded or surrendered and have strategic or tactical significance. But state president should not replace a field general, his words should express a political vision, he should give political assessments.”
