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

The question given to President Serzh Sargsyan by an MP from the opposition Heritage party, Zarui Postanjan, during the PACE session, that he allegedly lost 70 mln EUR in one of the European casinos, is a regular political show and an attempt to pass the people's attention off the problems of the country which are still relevant today, the leader of the People's Party, Tigran Karapetyan, said at today's press-conference.
He said that Postanjan's question was a part of a scenario prepared in advance. "The question about casino is not accusation. Are not we aware that he gambles? This question was given not for the first time", - the politician said.
To note, it is already for a week that the question given by Postanjan to the president of Armenia keeps the political field of the country in tension. Many people criticized her for the incorrect question, others said that her question was correct and expedient.
Postanjan was met at the airport as a national hero by members of the Heritage party, civil activists and the leader of the New Times party, Aram Karapetyan. They were holding placards "Well done, Zara!". Postanjan was met with the bread and salt of hospitality.
