“I just want to know, can you take responsibility and apologize for the abuses and crimes committed by the Armenian armed forces?” It is a simple question. Yes or no?”
Report says that the BBC’s HARDtalk host Stephen Sakur addressed this question to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.
Although Nikol Pashinyan, who has a poor command of English, avoided his open question, the host interrupted and reminded him: “It seems that you will not say ‘I’m sorry.'”
S. Sakur advised Armenian PM, who tried to bring the answers to the historical level to avoid questions, to look at the issues in terms of today’s realities. The TV presenter reminded the Armenian leader of the UN resolutions on Nagorno-Karabakh: “It clearly states that all Armenian forces must withdraw from the Republic of Azerbaijan territory. Under international law, your forces there are the occupying groups. But you go to that area and say that it belongs to you. It turns out that you are not a peacekeeper at all.”
