«Սա պետք է ոգևորի և ոգեշնչի յուրաքանչյուր հայի և պետք է նոր թափ հաղորդի մեր այն 30 տարիների պայքարին, որը դեռևս չենք ավարտել:»
Episode 184 | Recorded: December 15, 2022
We are now on the fourth day of this illegal blockade of Artsakh by Azerbaijan. No one can enter or leave Artsakh for 4 days and Artsakhtsis have been without gas for three days.
We will discuss this issue today with the leader of the Artsakh’s justice party, Hakob Hakobyan. Welcome Hakob.
Q: How would you describe the situation on the ground in Artsakh?
There have been numerous reports that in order to unblock the Lachin corridor the Azerbaijani side has demanded access to the Kashen mine. In fact, there were media reports that the rights to the Kashen mine have been sold to foreign companies.
Q: Is there any truth to these reports?
Q: Do you have any hope of the “international community” intervening? How do you see the potential of international humanitarian efforts to help Artsakh?
Hakob Hakobyan is the co-chair of the Artsakh Justice Party.
