In a statement to CNBC, the Armenian president said, "Artsakh / Karabakh is an area with a population of nearly 100,000 people, and we have seen hundreds of dead in the last clash, so the international community must understand that if it does not intervene now, the Caucasus will be another big problem for them. "
In response to a question about the impact of this crisis on energy, he added, "We should not look at this aforementioned answer from one perspective only, and that the world is not only dependent on energy, but it is much more complex, and there are national interests, stability, trade, logistics and many other issues."
Speaking to the TV network, Armenian President Armen Sarkissian warned of the dangers of the conflict in the region turning into another Syria, and said he hoped that would not happen, because it would be a great tragedy for everyone from the world.
The Armenian president explained that "if you look at the activities of the current Turkish government, it seems that they have problems with the entire surrounding, in the Mediterranean, in Greece, in Libya, in Iraq, they are creating problems everywhere."
"They claim that Armenia poses a threat to the international energy pipeline, and this is complete nonsense. This pipeline has existed for more than 20 years. We have not done this in 20 years, so why do we want to do it now," Armen Sarkassian concluded.
