Armenian MP, Stepan Saparian, thinks that the Baku-Tbilisi-Cars
railway, alongside other similar projects is a political project.

Saparian mentioned that the Armenian Government and officials were
not paying due attention to the situation around the country. So as
a result of such an approach Armenia consider that pipelines running
from Caspian Sea region towards Turkey, transport not only gas and oil
but politics as well. Armenian officials think that the Baku-Tbilisi
Kars railway is leaving Armenia out of the East-West main route. So,
Armenia faces serious challenges from this point of view.
