Armenia's Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan met with President of the Artsakh Republic (Nagorno-Karabakh) Arayik Harutyunyan at the Government.
“Honorable Mr. President, I am glad to see you. We are practically working on a daily basis after the end of the 44-day war to restore normal life in Artsakh. I can say that during this time we have implemented large-scale projects together. We have already implemented several joint projects worth tens of billions of drams. The decision we made to implement an AMD 110 billion (about $206 million) housing and infrastructure project in Artsakh with the help of the ‘Hayastan’ All-Armenian Fund is very important.
In fact, if implemented within three years, it will turn out that this program is comparable to all the programs implemented in Artsakh so far, if not a little more.
It is also a good opportunity for me to share with you the results and impressions of my visit to Moscow. Of course, the issue of Artsakh, the situation around Artsakh, has been one of the most important topics of our discussions with the President of Russia. I consider it very important that I share the content of the discussions with you,” said Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
“Thank you, Mr. Prime Minister. I want to fix, repeat, remember that yes, not only during the war, but also in the post-war period, in this difficult social situation, we worked on a daily basis. We have managed not only to implement the urgent social programs, but also to clearly work out our plans for the future.
In this regard, I would like to note that I am satisfied with what we have discussed together, which is already being documented and is being implemented in parallel. I want to highlight our further actions in the security and political sector, especially in connection with the status of Karabakh, where our actions must be not only agreed, but also in the same way.
In this context, we also consider your visit to Moscow to be very important. The role of the Russian Federation, especially the role of the Russian President, in making peace, and in keeping the peace of Karabakh in the post-war period, is quite appreciable,” said Artsakh President Arayik Harutyunyan.
“It is also important to state that the Russian peacekeepers are the main figures in ensuring security and stability today. In this regard, we must state that the peacekeepers’ function is very effective. We must hope, I am sure that it will continue with the same efficiency,” Pashinyan said.
