Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

Serzh Sargsyan is completely illegitimate and acts at the foreign forces' bidding, Aram Manukyan, parliamentarian from the opposition Armenian National Congress, said in Parliament on Tuesday, when commenting on Armenia's decision to join the Customs Union.
"It has become Serzh Sargsyan's habit not to inform his people of his actions. Here we can recall, for instance, the Armenian-Turkish protocols, which were initialed quite unexpectedly for us. The same concerns the decision to join the Customs Union", said Manukyan.
Manukyan thinks that Sargsyan's plans are thoroughly kept from not only the public but also from the Government members. This is proved by the controversial and mutually exclusive statements of the ruling coalition members before the Sept 3 statement made in Moscow. Manukyan said that due to the ill- considered actions of the countries' leaders, Armenia is gradually losing its image of a reliable and predictable partner. "Having no legitimacy, Serzh Sargsyan has lost control over the processes and is now acting at the foreign forces' bidding. His further tenure in office is fraught with new, more dangerous developments", said Manukyan.
