Political expert: Reports that the Azeri Parliament might adopt a law "On Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan" were just an attempt to see the reaction of the Azeri society, Armenia and the world community

To gather 15 thousand rally in Gyumri, 10 thousand in Vanadzor and 5 thousand in Kapan is simply heroism, as one cannot compare rallies in Yerevan with rallies in the regions, political expert Stepan Grigoryan said at today's press-conference when speaking about the political meetings of the leader of the Heritage party Raffi Hovannisian.
He said that Hovannisian will never go to concession with the authorities in exchange for any position. He did not agree to the viewpoint of other experts that the votes given for Raffi Hovannisian are against Serzh Sargsyan. "These are his votes, though it will be difficult to keep them, and only if they go on fighting, they will manage to keep these votes", - Grigoryan said.
When touching on foreign policy of Armenia, he said that president of Armenia has been conducting a very much balanced policy with the West and Russia. At the same time, he did not rule out pressure on Serzh Sargsyan from the side of Russia during his visit to Moscow on 12 March.
