Environmentalist Raises Concerns Over Syunik Land Lease Deal

15:33, May 2, 2013

Environmentalist and Artsakh War vet Apres Zohrabyan expressed a number of concerns today regarding rumors that the Armenian government is planning to lease grazing lands in Syunik to Iran on a long-term basis.

Number one is the fact that the shepherds will most likely be Turkic-speaking Azeris.

Nevertheless, Zohrabyan said he would deem the project a crime even if the shepherds were English or Canadian.

Zohrabyan argued that the Syunik lands would be subject to great environmental damage in a short span of time and that this, in turn, would lead to a host of socio-economic problems resulting from the fact that the lands would no longer be suitable for farming.
