Armenia’s Public TV company prepared a report entitled “Friendship in the Past and Enmity in the Present,” which touched upon peaceful life between Armenians and Azerbaijanis before the war and explained the possibility of restoring this friendship in the future.
In the story, residents of the border village Aygepar in the Tavush region of Armenia recalled how in the Soviet years they worked and went to visit the neighbouring Azerbaijani village of Alibeyli, which is now, of course, impossible.
The report quotes the Georgian-Ossetian conflict as a parallel, and notes that, unlike Armenians and Azerbaijanis, these two peoples “managed to regain their former friendship and live side by side today.”
With this plot, the Public TV of Armenia is beginning to implement the agreements reached recently between the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan on preparing peoples for peace.
On the eve on the margins of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan had a conversation with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. During the meeting, the sides discussed the current situation and further interventions around the process of resolving the Karabakh conflict.
