MP Tigran Abrahamyan of the opposition Pativ Unem bloc has strongly deplored the statements of the Armenian and Artsakh leadership on the possible disbandment of the Artsakh armed forces.

“The issue of disbanding the Artsakh Defense Army has again been pushed to the top agenda,” he wrote on Saturday.

“Earlier, it was done by Azerbaijan as part of its threats, but now the issue is brought up and discussed by both the Armenian leadership and, surprisingly enough, the Artsakh authorities.

“Despite the efforts to present the disarmament among the Defense Army – whether full or partial – in the context of international guarantees or the possible expansion of the Russian peacekeeping contingent deployed in Artsakh, it is impermissible,” Abrahamyan underscored.

The lawmaker claims the process is aimed at “getting rid of the last wall support for Artsakh.”

“Azerbaijan is in a hurry to eliminate the most important institution of resistance before the 5-year term of the Russian peacekeeping mission expires, in the event of which there will be no resources for negotiation or fighting.

“To say nothing of the fact that after the 44-day war we saw how international guarantees and the presence of peacekeepers were trampled upon and new territories of Artsakh were occupied,” the MP said.
