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 I addressed to Serzh Sargsyan about the money he wasted at a casino contained accusations also against Europeans, who made a deal with Serzh Sargsyan," Zaruhi Postanjyan, MP from Heritage Party, a member of the Armenian Delegation to PACE, told ArmInfo.
"Yet at the Summer Session of PACE, I openly declared that Serzh Sargsyan's legitimization was backed also by European officials. As regards the betrayal allegations against me and the accusations for washing our dirty linen in public, I would like to say that the terrible migration scales of Armenia best than any statements unveil the face of the country's authorities," Postanjyan said.
She recalled that only in Strasbourg there are 15,000 Armenians, who have migrated over the last 3-4 years. Asked if any other Armenian delegate yielded her his right to speak, Postanjyan said that if anyone has a desire to speak, he is given such opportunity in line with the Regulations.
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.
