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”
On July 29 the green activists will hold a protest action in Khosrov reserve.
The activists demand dismantling the illegal construction from the territory of the former Gilan partial reserve and stopping the construction of the road from Khosrov to Havuts Tar monastery complex.
The environmentalists consider that the road will be actively used by public transport, and this will have a negative effect on the Khosrov reserve. According to the official version, the road is of fire-prevention significance. As regards the two-storey building in the former partial reserve Gilan, the environmentalists think a restaurant was to be built there. After the protest actions of the environmentalists and activists in 2011, Gilan regained the status of a reserve, and the construction was stopped. Notwithstanding this, the future of the construction is still vague.
