“The Azerbaijani propaganda brings up a whole generation in the atmosphere of xenophobia and intolerance. My words are proven by the formation of an image of a hero over the faint-hearted and cowardly murderer, who was extradited to Baku by Hungarian authorities,” said Serzh Sargsyan.

"Armenia has its sovereign right to decide how it sees the path of its further development. It should either cooperate with the EU or take part in the Eurasian programs. It shouldn't simultaneously develop economic and commercial cooperation with two different structures. The ball is now on your half of the field."
