Azerbaijan’s actions connected with blogger Alexander’ Lapshin’s detention and his further extradition were aimed at preventing visits to Artsakh, Armenia’s Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said at a Q&A at the National Assembly.
He added, however, that the Azerbaijani so-called black list, which includes the names of outstanding public, political and culture figures, even statesmen and foreign ministers, “speaks for itself.”
“This never stopped the flow of people to Artsakh,” the Foreign Minister said. He’s confident the number of visitors will tend to grow in the future.
“Steps have been taken and will be taken in this direction,” Minister Nalbandian said without revealing any details.
The Minister noted that “by dragging third countries into such deals Azerbaijan pursues the aim of causing harm in different spheres. “We must not give in to the provocations and refrain from pouring water on Azerbaijan’s mill,” Minister Nalbandian stated.
