Lydian Armenia doesn't accept the decision by RA Nature Protection and Soil Inspection Body on the cessation of the mining operations in Amulsar area and implementation of new environmental impact expert assessment.

'Resolution published by the Inspection Body and following public statements made by Artur Grigoryan aimed at canceling the largest foreign investment project without any legal or scientific basis, and with amateurish reasoning. While the inspection group was not able to identify any serious issues that could be a reason for public concern, Artur Grigoryan has issued unreasonable and unlawful conclusions, disregarding any consideration for the seriousness of his mission and consequences of such irresponsible behavior.…The company is applying to PM Nikol Pashinyan to take urgent measures to eliminate the continuing illegal actions around Amulsar project and the illegal actions by state bodies towards the company,' the statement says.

Reminder: RA Nature Protection Ministry has been proposed by RA Nature Protection and Soil Inspection Body to declare void state expert assessment statement № ԲՓ-35 approved by RA Nature Protection Minister on 29.04.2016 based on the newly emerged environmental factors.

Reminder: Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan said during his live on Facebook on 2 August, "We need to carry out another international expert assessment for the final conclusion. There is a criminal case initiated in regard to Amulsar in Criminal Investigative Department and the Committee shall appoint expert assessment in the frames of the initiated criminal case. It is very important to have this expert assessment carried out by an international reputable expert company, so as to have the findings of the expert assessment acceptable and undeniable not only for the Armenian society and the Armenian Government but also by the international community, as this is a very important matter."

RA Nature Protection Ministry, which has been proposed by RA Nature Protection and Soil Inspection Body to declare void state expert assessment statement № ԲՓ-35 approved by RA Nature Protection Minister, hasn't made any official statement.
