The issue of Azerbaija's undeclared military exercises has been raised within the OSCE, Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan said at the National Assembly on Thursday.

His comments came in response to a question by opposition Prosperous Armenia lawmaker Tigran Urikhanyan whether Azerbaijan's move could be viewed as a demarche not only against Armenia or Artsakh, but also against the international community and a number of international organizations.

“Don’t you plan to apply to the UN Security Council to have Azerbaijan’s dossier reviewed?” the lawmaker asked.

“This concern falls within the framework of regional security and stability. Any issue has its format and specific platforms. And that format and platform in this case is the OSCE. Thus, the issue has been raised within it to allow the use of the necessary tools,” he added.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
