Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community
Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
The scandal around Ramil Safarov's extradition continues influencing Armenia's joint cultural projects with Hungary. Recently the well-known Armenian pianist Hayk Melikyan has cancelled his tour to Hungary. Now it is the turn of the well-known choreographer Joseph Nadia, who should have performed on the margins of X HIGH FEST International Performing Arts Festival.
Joseph Nadia is a Hungarian by origin, but for over 20 years he has been living and working in France, where he heads the National Choreography Center. HighFest President Arthur Ghukasyan told ArmInfo that the Joseph Nadia Center was expected to be the headliner of the festival. However, the scandalous extradition of the Safarov who killed an Armenian officer with an axe in Hungary has crossed out these plans. "We informed them of the current situation in Armenia, and they understood it", he said.
To note, X HIGH FEST International Performing Arts Festival will be held in Yerevan on 2-9 October.
