    Get in your head for the last time. The Artsakh issue has been settled long time ago. Artsakh ( with her current borders and nothing less) is part of Armenia. Artsakh is a Marz of Armenia period.
    What efforts are you talking about, the way you signed the ill faith Turkish-Armenian Protocol, the way you are talking about the bizarre and yet unclear Madridian principles and under the table agreements with one or other in your sneaky ways , it is clear that you are running the whole show and Serj Sarkissian is just a lost figurative powerless leader. Where are you getting your orders and directions from? The Artsakh conflict not Karabagh conflict is done and final. Azerbaijan is in war with Armenia but nobody else. We should have the current Artsakh (Marz Region) Foreign minister replace you and get someone anybody from APARAN ( I know there are many jokes on Aparantsis ) to be the president of Armenia. Believe me we will have a better leaders leading our beloved Armenia and the Marz Artsakh than what we currently have and Azerbaijan will not dare to shoot even a bullet on Armenian homeland.
    Your foreign ministry is driving the Armenian homeland to a disaster and your time has come to go. Go to your masters whoever they are. Maybe to Hillery Clinton and those behind the curtain who want her to run for presidency. Maybe go to Russia and those in Russia who are also controlling Russian politics. Time has shown over and over again that you can trust smiling people sometimes but never all the time. You can not fool Armenians or anybody else with your smiles.
    I sincerely hope that Asbarez will allow these comments to be viewed by the Asbarez readers. Time will show who was right.
