YEREVAN (Yerkir)–Armenian Foreign Ministry (MFA) Spokesman Hamlet Gasparian said that he would like to believe statemen’s made by US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Reno Harnish.
Harnish said that Armenian President Robert Kocharian’s commen’s about the possible unification of Karabagh can only heighten tensions in the region and will lead to no good.
"I would like not to believe that was what he said," said Gasparian.
"If he did–however," added Gasparian–"I would suggest to the Honorable Ambassador that he not look too far–and instead comment on statemen’s made by Azerbaijan’s leadership–which provide ample material for a variety of assumptions–including heightening tensions in the region–and even directly threatening war.
"It would be interesting to know: What keeps the ambassador from not seeing or pretending not to see those statemen’s? It appears that the US Ambassador in Baku has become a native," the spokesman’said.
