Upon the statements made by the government of the Republic of Armenia on May 22nd, 2023, claiming that the government of the Republic of Armenia is prepared to recognize the Republic of Artsakh as well as enclaves in the Tavush and Ararat regions within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, and the trilateral meeting affirming this anti-Armenian stance of the government held on May 25th, 2023, the AYF-WUS would like to reaffirm our deepest condemnation for Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, whose efforts are working towards the anti-Armenian spread of pan Turkism.
The AYF-WUS also immediately calls for the resignation and removal of Nikol Pashinyan from the position of Prime Minister, as his actions have long evidenced his incompetence in leading the Armenian nation — a nation that must focus on maintaining the territorial integrity of both the Republics of Armenia and Artsakh.
The Republic of Artsakh is not for Nikol Pashinyan or his regime to sign away. The Republic of Artsakh exists and must continue to exist through the will of its people, and through the unification of the Diaspora, Armenia, and Artsakh.
The Pashinyan regime, whether it be in 2020, or 2022, or 2023, has continuously bended to the will of fascist Aliyev and his genocidal state. Now, the Pashinyan regime is actively working towards pan Turkism, and is subjecting our Armenian brothers and sisters in Artsakh, Ararat, and Tavush to Genocide. Pashinyan desecrates the memory and will of our martyrs that gave the ultimate sacrifice to prevent the cession of Artsakh, by all means necessary.
Nikol Pashinyan and his regime have no legal right, constitutional authority, electoral mandate, or moral standing to sell, sacrifice, or surrender Artsakh. Any question or attempts to invalidate the self-determination and independence of the Republic of Artsakh by any entity of the current Armenian administration is null and must immediately be condemned.
The Pashinyan regime must come to an immediate end. The Armenian people must rise, as we have done before, and join arms in the protection of Artsakh — that has and always will be an integral part of the Armenian homeland. Our people and nation did not survive years of Turkish oppression and Genocide to accept the tyranny, cowardice, and betrayal of Nikol Pashinyan.
