Armenian MP: "Russia discarded Armenia's interests in sorting out its relations with Georgia"

03 October 2006 [20:05] - TODAY.AZ
Introducing economic sanctions against Georgia will hardly affect Armenia, Deputy Parliamentary Speaker Vahan Hovhannisian has told reporters.

"Unfortunately, it's been not the first time when sorting out relations with Georgia, Russia discards Armenia's interests. They expect us, probably, to treat this issue with understanding, but I personally do not have such understanding, as it turns out that our strategic ally, wishes it or not, joins the blockade of Armenia," he says.

Vahan Hovhannisyan expresses hope that after Russian officers are released the positions will alleviate. "The matter is, how the Georgian side reacts to it: it can well try to gain revenge in other front. It is rather difficult to predict today," Armenia's deputy parliamentary speaker says. Regnum
