On 20 December, the German ambassador to Armenia Hans-Jochen Schmidt met with NGO representatives, Samvel Hovhannisyan (“Bicycle+”), Sona Ayvazyan (Transparency International), and Inga Zarayan (EcoLur). The Ambassador expressed his concern with the situation in Qajaran Village in regard with government decision N 627 dated on 28 April 2011, which assigns the land areas of the village to Zangezour Copper and Molybdenum Combine. The villagers appealed German Cronimet Company, ZCMC’s main shareholder, to share responsibility for this situation.
NGOs informed the Ambassador about the current situation and Mr. Hans-Jochen Schmidt didn’t exclude the possibility to visit Qajaran.
