The statement issued after the meeting of the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan in Brussels does not mention either the status of Artsakh or the Armenians living in Artsakh. According to former RA NA deputy Tevan Poghosyan, this fact means the end of a 30-year struggle. “People started the movement in 1988, in 1991 they took up arms to defend the land, and declared independence. For 30 years, the Armenians of Artsakh have provided their share of security in Armenia, and now there is not a word about Artsakh.” 

T. Poghosyan does not exclude that there could even be an oral agreement between the parties. “And if this is the case, it means that the current Armenian authorities serve the interests of Azerbaijan,” he said. The statement also does not mention the OSCE Minsk Group, which, according to T. Poghosyan, means refusing to talk about the status of Artsakh.
