Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.

The ruling regime has no way out from the created hard economic situation in Armenia, the head of the opposition Armenian National Congress parliamentary faction, Levon Zurabyan, told Arminfo correspondent.
He thinks that all the initiatives of the government failed. It could not provide 7% economic growth which President Serzh Sargsyan demanded at the beginning of the current year either. "Prime minister could not give a clear answer to any of the problems risen by the opposition. I told Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan in the parliament that his government had committed a crime. For the last two years the government gathered about $300 million debt for delivery of the Russian gas, but did not report about that either the community or the parliament. In 2011 the debt was $47 mln, in 2012 - $118 mln and in 2013 - it became $130 mln. It was gamble made by the government, members of which are criminal participants in the state crime", - Zurabyan said.
He also added that instead of giving explanation to all their actions, members of the government with a help of the parliamentary majority torpedoed all the initiatives of the parliamentary opposition.
In this context, Zurabyan emphasized that they will go on fighting at the streets. "I mean rallies and marches the goal of which is resignation of the incumbent power", - Zurabyan said.
