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

Zaruhi Postanjyan's statement has roots in the Turkish-Azeri lobby, the secretary of the parliamentary group of the Republican Party of Armenia Hovhannes Sahakyan told ArmInfo on Wednesday, when asked to comment on Postanjyan's question concerning the Armenian President's losing some 70mln EUR at a casino.
"Asking such a question to the Armenian President at PACE in the presence of Turkish and Azeri parliamentarians was nothing but the influence of the Turkish-Azeri lobby," Sahakyan said.
"Perhaps, we should organize a nationwide fundraising so as to meet Postanjyan's financial needs," he added.
Earlier in the day Armenian opposition MP Zaruhi Postanjyan asked Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan at PACE 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.
