Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

Tatevik Shahunyan. Hertiage Party Youth Wing representatives, members of other political parties and public organizations, as well as ordinary citizens of Armenia will be welcoming Zaruhi Pastanjyan, MP from Heritage Party, at Zvartnots Airport in Yerevan at 7:30pm local time today. Postanjyan will arrive from Strasbourg where she was attending the PACE Autumn Session.
To recall, Armenian opposition MP Zaruhi Postanjyan asked Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan at PACE on Wednesday how he paid the 70mln EUR he recently lost in a casino in Europe. Sargsyan said that he has never been in a casino and does not play gambling games. The question aroused a wave of criticism in Armenia. Along with other 'deadly sins,' representatives of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia slam Postanjyan for ties with the Turkish-Azerbaijani lobby.
Representatives of the Youth Wing of RPA were going to meet Postanjan at the airport with eggs and tomatoes. However, President's Spokesperson Arman Saghatelyan called such intention inadmissible and inexpedient, which has calmed down the young Republicans.
Nevertheless, Heritage Party told ArmInfo representatives of the Party will welcome Postanjyan at the airport amid safety concerns. At the Party they did not specify if Leader of Heritage Party Raffi Hovannisian will also be welcoming Zaruhi Postanjyan at the airport.
Earlier today, representatives of the civic society of Armenia expressed their support to Postanjyan and called inadmissible any possible pressure on her upon her return to Armenia.
