The third president of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, at a meeting in Gegharkunik region, published the promised record about Nikol Pashinyan.
Serzh Sargsyan earlier said that for many years the opposition have been spreading false information.
“Then I did not consider it necessary to react, given that I was president. But he (Nikol Pashinyan – ed.) is talking nonsense when he says this,” he said. “We saw him use “if” all the time. I give this immoral person 24 hours: either he will present the facts, or I will publish such facts about him, about his family, that society will spit in his face.”
The ex-president today said that 24 hours have already passed, but there are no facts.
In the recording Pashinyan speaks about his first meeting with Russian, Belarusian and Kazakh leaders.
“There was a place for coffee. Putin, Nazarbayev, Lukashenko came there, they told me: the people trust you so much, etc., now you have a historic chance to resolve the Karabakh issue. I answered: “okay, I understand that now is a historic chance, but what does it mean to decide?” They tell me about some written “Lavrov’s Plan”: the troops are being pulled back, we are coming there and even a fly won’t fly there. I said that without specifying the status, this is not at all a topic of conversation that can be discussed, etc. And here Putin, Nazarbayev and Lukashenko say: Aliyev understands that from now on Karabakh will never be a part of Azerbaijan. I answer: you are saying something wonderful.
Let’s put everything on paper, and it will become an interesting topic, I will present all this to the people and say: we have such a proposal, are we interested or not? And in the end I realized that they wanted to put me on the same conveyor, they say, smile, drink, and at the end the April war turned out. I then formulated my task: I need to somehow get off this conveyor, to be in another place. You need to do this by any means, pretending to be crazy, inadequate, but you need to get out of this conveyor. And then the situation was very risky. Too risky.”
Serzh Sargsyan went on to say: “There is only one conclusion – this person is not crazy, this person is pretending to be crazy. This is simply unacceptable for the head of state.”
