Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that they can no longer rely on Russia to protect his country.
Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan made important statements in his interview with Politico. Claiming that Russia’s capabilities have changed as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war, Pashinyan argued that the Moscow administration is afraid of alienating Azerbaijan and its close ally Turkey.
Pashinyan said, “In this case, our strategy should be to try to reduce our dependence on others to the maximum extent. We want to have an independent country, a sovereign country, but we must find ways to avoid falling into the center of conflicts between West and East, North and South. There is no such thing as Armenia becoming a ‘proxy’. “This cannot be allowed.” he said.
“WE CANNOT RELY ON RUSSIA”
Noting that it is unsustainable to appeal to the “great protector”, in the case of Armenia, to Russia every time conflicts flare up, Pashinyan said, “We can no longer rely on Russia to protect us.” he said.
On the other hand, Pashinyan underlined that he could not make the essment that “If Russian peacekeepers were not in Karabakh, the situation would be better today.”
Prime Minister of Armenia: “If we want to have a permanent and eternal state, we must first take very serious steps and make very serious efforts to improve our relations with our neighbors.” He also used the expression. (AA)
