Armenian ex-presidents could travel to Russia for Karabakh meetings

PanARMENIAN.Net - First and second Armenian Presidents Levon Ter-Petrosyan and Robert Kocharyan could travel to Russia to discuss the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh with representatives of the Russian elite.

Prime Minister's spokeswoman, Mane Gevorgyan, said on Friday, October 30 that former Karabakh presidents Arkadi Ghukasyan and Bako Sahakyan have informed Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan about Ter-Petrosyan and Kocharyan's plans, revealing that the latter also want to propose "concrete solutions" to the Armenian government, based on the results of discussions in Moscow.

According to Gevorgyan, the former presidents of Karabakh have suggested discussing the results of a possible visit during the meeting of the former and current leaders of Armenia and Karabakh.

"Stressing that no possible step in favor of Armenia and Artsakh can be an obstacle, Prime Minister Pashinyan has accepted the proposal," Gevorgyan said.

"According to the information we have, the ex-presidents have not left Armenia yet. In any event, the Prime Minister and the government are open to proposals for resolving the situation and have never refused to discuss such proposals."

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
