  1. Mr Foreign Minister of Armenia

    Why do you waste your precious time with this little woman of cnn that has become the voice of misrepresentation.
    She treated you the way the bbc “reporter” treated you rudely.
    These are ignorant people who are paid well to recite to the uninformed public of the world what their shareholders (British petroleum with 17 billion investment in Azerbaijan) and the cnn stockholders draft for them to ask shamelessly. Why give them the opportunity to turn around and twist what you have told them. Ignore their interview requests.
    But THANK YOU Mr. Mnatzaganyan for educating this reporter about the aggression by Azerbaijan, isis i.e. turkey and others siding with them, to perpetrate Genocide on the peaceful population of Artsakh (Russian karabagh) and Armenia. Artsakh will win in spite of all odds against her!!!!
