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”
Minister of Nature Protection of Armenia Aram Haroutiunyan has commented on the reports on poaching in the Khosrov reserve.
To recall, earlier on Monday green activists disseminated a video record with fragments of killed Red Book animals, Bezoar goat and brown bear, as well as traces of fires and garbage.
On September 25 Minister Haroutiunyan told media that they have not yet found the place shown in the video record. He addressed those who disseminated the above video offering cooperation in the issue. The minister said that the materials have been submitted to the law-enforcement agencies for investigation.
As regards alarms of environmentalists over the two-storey building in the reserve, which has not been removed yet, the minister said that the issue might be submitted to the court to settle the dispute with the developers.
