Artsakh Blockade Flash Update with Gev Iskajyan - Ep 236, Mar 12, 2023
Armenian News Network Groong - March 12, 2023
Episode 236 | Recorded: March 12, 2023
Gas was cut off yesterday again.
On our last call we discussed that Artsakh reps met with Azerbaijani government officials to discuss logistics and infrastructure, but Azerbaijan misrepresented those discussions as being about “integration of Karabakh Armenians into Azerbaijan”. That was flatly denied and rejected by both Arayik Harutyunyan, as well as the Armenian government in Yerevan.
Both Arayik Harutyunyan and Pashinyan also warned of Azerbaijan preparing for further aggression and violence. This week we had the terrible shootings of three Artsakh policemen and the wounding of another by Azeri forces.
Yesterday Armenia’s national security chair Armen Grigoryan said that Armenia won’t sign a peace treaty without rights and security for Artsakh.
