“Shushi is an Armenian cultural center” – Yerevan’s response to Baku
STEPANAKERT, JANUARY 20, ARTSAKHPRESS-ARMENPRESS: “Shushi is an Armenian cultural center. We will not agree to the claims that Shushi is a Turkish cultural center. We are sure that we will receive the international community’s support in this matter,” Aivazian said.
