EDIK BALAYAN: ARMENIAN TERRITORIES MUST BE GIVEN BACK
“We demand the issue of liberation of Getashen, Martunashen and other
Armenian villages to be raised during negotiations over Karabakhi conflict”,
Shahumyan-Getashen patriotic union’s leader Edik Balayan said at a news
conference held Wednesday.
He said in 1991, 20,000 Armenians had been driven from Karabakh-bordering
In his words, 17,000 people driven from their homes have taken refuge in
Armenia and face innumerable problems here. They are deprived of normal
living conditions, he said.
“We have no intention to cede our territories and will keep on struggling to
get them back”, Balayan said.
