Baku, 12 July 2021 –

Acting Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan is sending his aide Gagik Isakhanyan to the part of Azerbaijani territory in Nagorno-Karabakh controlled by Russian peacekeepers. The corresponding decision was published on the website of the Armenian government. According to the Armenian media, Assistant to the Prime Minister of Armenia Gagik Isakhanyan was sent to Nagorno-Karabakh 'on a four-day working visit.'

The report of the Armenian media says that upon his return from Khankendi, PM's assistant 'must submit a report on the results' within three days.

It should be noted that the last time Nikol Pashinyan set foot on Azerbaijani soil was in October last year, when a fierce war was going on in Karabakh. And after the surrender of Armenia, the Azerbaijani side demanded to stop such illegal visits, although some government officials from Yerevan, including the foreign minister, visited Karabakh. The Azerbaijani side has warned that it will take tough steps if Armenian officials do not stop illegal visits to Azerbaijani territories.

Now Pashinyan, of course, personally does not dare to appear in the Azerbaijani territories. However, he decided to 'send' his assistant, and this fact testifies to the fact that Yerevan does not want to put up with the fact that some territorial unit called 'Nagorno-Karabakh' or 'Artsakh' no longer exists.
