“Despite everything Nazarbayev’s attitude and the letter reading by him I consider offensive for Armenia and I find offensive the attitude of founding member countries, Russia and Belarus”-in the interview with Panarama said the head of “Free Democrats” party, crossbencher Khachatur Kokobelyan.
According to Kokobelyan especially it is offensive that in fact we are dealing with a phenomenon, when a third side who has nothing to do with the establishment of the Union, have a direct impact or try to have it.
The MP, who has never concealed that he is against the Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union,noted that it is important to understand a fact that all the reasons that brought opponents and the authorities, that joining to EurAsEC and CU is a solution to the security problem in Astana,Nazarbayev just vanished. “It isn’t strange, but it is interesting that the authorities have spared no effort to introduce and sometimes also argue that Nazarbayev represents the interests of Azerbaijan.In other words,actually, the country that have the greatest impact, at least after Russia, does not serve our interests and that assessment is not mine, but the authorities.In that case, the question is about what are we doing there? ”
He noted that the biggest problem is that we are all bypasses and especially those who are bringing economic grounds.”Kazakhstan’s interest is that it exports its oil from Russian channels and it will have a big problem without that union. Belarus interests are understandable.If Armenia is only political,then in that case, perhaps it is not clear why we are sparing no effort in trying to integrate a process, which, in my opinion,will give nothing to Armenia.
He also added that he has an opinion that the President, who was represented everyone in Astana,was obliged to answer that controversial question at that time and everyone was clearly understand that it isn’t connected neither with Azerbaijan nor with raised question.
When we asked to comment on a statement made by the RA president Serj Sargsyan on Saturday, Kokobelyan noted that unlike many others he doesn’t think that Karabakh is threatened. But he thinks that in general Armenia endangers foreign policyand as a result Karabakh process.”It is s self-isolation and the process of only three states to fry in their own oil and no more and that may be the most important obstacle to the integration of other processes that could contribute to the Karabakh conflict.We should not look at the world from our narrow windows and only to the north: the world is very wide, andboth political and economic processes taking place in today’s world are out of that creating process”.
