Head of Forum of Armenian Associations of Europe (FAAE): Edward Nalbanyan is the worst foreign affairs minister of Armenia

  • Friday, October 12, 17:32

Over its whole history Armenia has never had such a bad foreign affairs minister like Edward Nalbandyan, the head of FAAE and of the Armenian community of Slovakia, Ashot Grigoryan, said at today's press-conference in Yerevan.

"Even the ministers of the Armenian Pan-National Movement, which I treat not so well, for instance, Aleksandr Arzumanyan, which has been always criticised by me, used to work better. As for Nalbandyan, he only walks and gets a buzz", - Grigoryan said. He also added that Nalbandyan does not cooperate with organizarions of the Armenian Diaspora, in particular, with FAAE, and often acts even against them. If Armenia goes on conducting such a foreign
policy, danger will be seriously hovering over existence of the Republic of Armenia, he said.

Grigoryan said that the Armenian Diaspora is seriously concerned about the current situation in Armenia. "The Diaspora declared that it will not interfere in domestic political problems of Armenia. But we have gradually turned into ATM which gives a certain sum when needed. However, at present, stemming from the current situation in the country, we have decided to interfere at the necessary moment and resolve problems which, we think, are pulling the country to the bottom", - Grigoryan said.In this context, touching on the lawsuit filed against ex-foreign minister of Armenia, Vartan Oskanian, Grigoryan said that this case is a political one and is a result of a clash between Prosperous Armenia Party and Republican Party of Armenia. He also added that
the statement by US Ambassador to Armenia John Heffern on the matter was rather impartial but a little bit late.
