In this week’s episode of Insights with Eric Hacopian, Eric discusses the humanitarian consequences of Azerbaijan’s blockade of Artsakh, which has now stretched past its 100th day. Eric also gives his take on the Armenian government’s deal last month to restart operations at the Amulsar gold mine and gives some personal advice to Louis Bono, Washington’s new special envoy to the South Caucasus.

“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
