Sacked State Minister says has no intention to leave Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - Former Minister of State of Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh) Ruben Vardanyan, who was dismissed from his post on Thursday, February 23, has said that he is aware of the pressure associated with his presence in the country, but despite this, he will not only not leave, but also cannot imagine himself without Artsakh.

Vardanyan said in a video message published on his official Facebook page on Thursday that he would continue to invest his efforts to make sure that as many Armenians as possible come to Artsakh.

According to him, the fact that Azerbaijan, hoping to bring the people of Artsakh to their knees, to break them, was cruelly mistaken, is more important than financial, managerial and other issues.

“Azerbaijan has seen that we have become more united, even manifestations of indifference have disappeared. It was very encouraging to hear people in different communities say: “We are ready to endure without gas and electricity, just don’t betray us and let’s continue the fight,” he said.

President of Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Arayik Harutyunyan has dismissed Ruben Vardanyan from the position of State Minister. Harutyunyan chaired a Cabinet meeting on Thursday, February 23 and published the decree, noting that he appreciates Vardanyan’s efforts.
