ArmInfo.Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia Mher Grigoryan does not rule out the risks associated with the torpedoing of the opening of communications in the region from Baku.
"We are at the initial stage of discussions and no one knows what awaits us and the risks that the prime minister is talking about, they are appropriate. But we need to work, and more intensively - this will determine how quickly we will find out our capabilities, " he said on April 16 in an interview with journalists.
When asked what official Baku has repeatedly said "about returning to the Zangezur corridor", Grigoryan replied: "It is possible that during the work I will discuss the issue of the corridor in the context in which you suggest in your question. The word corridor is usually used as a transport route, but I emphasize-precisely in this regard, that even as a transport route, the issue will not be discussed."
According to him, he has repeatedly said that ways are being discussed, the legal regulation of which will be carried out exclusively on the basis of the legal framework of the CIS countries, international treaties and conventions to which Armenia has acceded.
The other day, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said from the rostrum of the parliament that he suspects that Azerbaijan is trying to torpedo the process of opening regional transport communications and continue to keep Armenia in a blockade. "We will consistently follow the path of implementing the trilateral statement signed in Moscow on January 11, 2021. The opening of Armenia's railway connection with Russia and Iran is of strategic importance for Armenia, " he said. Pashinyan noted that, in all likelihood, Azerbaijan will do everything to prevent the opening of communications in the region.
