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
Protest action against President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan continues near PACE building in Strasbourg.
To recall, a group of France-based Armenians went on a three-day sit-down strike during the Armenian President's visit to Strasbourg. Gala TV channel quotes journalists Lilit Simonyan as saying that some Armenian politicians in France are disappointed with the President's decision to join the Customs Union and must be willing to express their protest by means of this strike.
To note, the atmosphere is tense not only outside PACE session, but inside as well. In particular, Armenian opposition MP Zaruhi Postanjyan asked Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan at PACE on Wednesday how he paid the 70mln EUR he has recently lost in a casino in Europe. Sargsyan replied he has never been in a casino and does not play gambling games.
