YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 2, NOYAN TAPAN. Today it is not urgent and topical
to raise the issue of Javakhk's autonomy. Hayk Sanosian, a RA National
Assembly deputy, the Co-chairman of the Union of Georgian Armenians
NGO, reported at the September 2 press conference. According to him,
raising such issues in Javakhk is not in Armenia's interests. "Such
issues cause great shocks and I do not consider that Armenia is
ready to resist them. "The events in Javakhk have a direct impact on
Armenia's foreign policy, as well as economy," H.

Sanosian said adding that "Armenia-Georgia-Javakhk" is an interrelated
system, therefore we should treat such issues very delicately. Besides,
the NKR problem is not solved yet and we should not let one issue
incomplete and pass to the other.

In response to the question of why information was spread by Russian
media that allegedly Javakhk is going to raise the issue of its
autonomy, the deputy said: "Maybe Georgia's having a problem with
other national minorities is beneficial for the Russian side."

In H. Sanosian's opinion, Armenia's position over the latest regional
events should not be neutral. "Armenia should be active and call the
two states for sitting at the negotiations table," he said.
