PM Pashinyan presents the “Crossroads of the World” project at the Paris Peace Forum


YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 10, ARMENPRESS.  During the panel discussion at the "6th Paris Peace Conference", Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, presenting the "Crossroads of Peace" project, noted that it is aimed at connecting  the regional countries, including Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkey, with railways, roads, cables, gas pipelines, power lines or to strengthen existing connections.

''The South Caucasus needs peace, that is, a situation where all countries in the region live with open borders, are connected by active economic, political, cultural ties, and have accumulated experience and traditions of resolving all issues using the tools of diplomacy and dialogue.

Without the resumption of transport communications, it will be very difficult to ensure such a situation, and given this fact, the Armenian government has presented the “Crossroads of the World” project.

The “Crossroads of the World” project will also be beneficial for Georgia and Iran, including bilaterally, as well as in terms of strengthening relations with Azerbaijan, Turkey and Armenia,’’ Pashinyan said, expressing hope that they would be able to implement the project as a guarantee of stable and long-term peace in the region,'' said Pashinyan.

According to PM Pashinyan, the implementation of the "Crossroads of Peace" project would be beneficial not only for the region, but also for international trade, communication and stability.

“And I hope for support not only from the countries of the region, but also from the international community, in general. Undoubtedly, we are facing a very important and historical crossroads. Let's make it a crossroads of peace", concluded Armenian Prime Minister.

“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
