• “We are constantly changing prime ministers, but the economy does not gain anything from it” (video)

    The possibility of resuming the Karabakh war is very low today, says political scientist Levon Shirinyan.

    He says there is no need to arm the residents of border villages; we should create defense units instead.

    The delay in Nagorno-Karabakh conflict resolution is conducive to the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs as each political force seeks to strengthen its position in the Caucasus.

    The expert says Armenia does not have a strategic ally as such. “It would be much better if we deepened our relationship with Iran without paying attention to the disapproval of some countries. Let them say whatever they want, we should not care for their opinion,” he said.

    Mr Shirinyan considers migration to be the key problem in Armenia and says the authorities are doing nothing to stop it.

    “We are constantly changing prime ministers, but the economy gains nothing from these changes,” he said advising officials to take steps to promote development of industry, science and tourism development.
