Vardanyan responds to offer to take Karabakh State Minister’s post

PanARMENIAN.Net - Billionaire and entrepreneur Ruben Vardanyan has responded to the offer by the Nagorno-Karabakh President Arayik Harutyunyan to accept the position of State Minister in Karabakh.

Vardanyan said on Wednesday, October 5 that he would be willing to accept the offer “if the approaches and decisions to be proposed have broad support.”

“Saving Artsakh is the key goal of my life today. I moved here to join my compatriots and do everything for the preservation and development of this cradle of Armenian civilization. Today the existence of Artsakh is threatened,” Vardanyan said.

“In this unprecedented situation, difficult solutions are required from all of us. We must forget personal grudges and ambitions and gather all healthy forces both in Artsakh and in the entire Armenian world, clearly understanding the seriousness of the challenges we face.”

The businessman, who denounced Russian citizenship and moved to Karabakh in early September, said he needs to make sure that people share his vision for the future, which is why he will continue consultations in the coming days and only then make a decision.
