ArmInfo. Armenian Prime Minister, Leader of the Republican Party of
Armenia (RPA) Serzh Sargsyan denied the statement, which was ascribed
to him, that the religious factor is the prime mover of the Karabakh
conflict.

"It is merely funny as I didn’t express such a thought in an interview
with Los Angeles Times", S.Sargsyan said to journalists after the 11th
congress of the RPA, Saturday. "In this interview I said that the
religious factor finds place in this conflict. If it were not so, why
are our historical monuments and khachkars (cross- stones) being
demolished, and after all, why were Armenians killed just for being
Armenians?", he said. To note, according to some media, S.Sargsyan said
in his interview with the Los Angeles Times newspaper that the
religious factor is the prime mover of the Karabakh conflict.
