“I have always agreed to normalize our relations with all the neighbors,” Zhirayr Liparityan, former adviser on the foreign policy and security policy of the first president of Armenia, told reporters in the parliament.
Liparityan responded to the journalist’s observation that the strategy he had developed was criticized and qualified as a “paper” for Armenia.
“And what did you expect, people who do not want to approach with realism, do they want to live with dreams, what should they think about that white paper, which is an invitation to conduct politics thinking?”
Referring to Artsvik Minasyan’s idea of establishing a relationship with a neighbor who wants to destroy you, Jirayr Liparityan answered.
“Artsvik Minasyan lived in Armenia, was he slaughtered? He has been saying for 30 years that we will be slaughtered.”
As for the question whether Liparityan is ready to come from the United States and live in Armenia in case he is going to create Turkish-Armenia, he answered.
“These kinds of questions come from people who, in fact, do not talk to my arguments, those arguments do not mean. These kinds of rhetorical questions come from people who are not ready to discuss what I said. ”
To the question whether he sees a danger for Armenia from Turkey or Azerbaijan, Liparityan answered.
Liparityan advised to read his book, there are the answers to all the questions.
It should be reminded that Turkish Foreign Minister Mlut Cavusoglu stated that Turkey and Armenia will appoint special representatives to normalize relations.
The RA MFA also reported that Armenia will appoint a special representative for the dialogue with Turkey without preconditions.
