Lydian will supposedly apply to arbitrary which will create legal issues for the country, Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan told the reporters today in Kapan.
“Today too I urge to open the road and consider the actions of our dear compatriots illogical as because of them the issue has entered a deadlock. The issue will not be solved unless the road is opened,” Armenia’s PM said.
He stressed that he is interested in exploitation of the mine.
“I can say both yes and no. I am interested in the exploitation of Amulsar mine as it is related to Armenia’s security environment. If Amulsar was exploited this year we would have had not 7,5 but much bigger economic growth and thousands of jobs,” the head of the government stated.
“On the other hand in no case I will agree to exploitation of Amulsar if it harms the health of the people of Armenia, Jermuk and nearby communities and causes not restorable harms to the country’s nature,” Pashinyan said.
The PM said as far as the road to the mine is closed we cannot conclude whether the exploitation will harm or not.
“I consider such actions illogical, disrespectful, not stemming from Armenia’s interests,” the head of the government said.
