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.

Ignoring Azerbaijan's provocations on the line of contact of the Armenian and Azerbaijani armed forces, the OSCE MG may contribute to resumption of armed conflict, Gerasim Vardanyan, Head of the Central Board of ARFD's Nikol Aghbalyan Student Union, told reporters in the course of today's action of protest in front of the Armenian Foreign Ministry. The Union organized the protest demanding the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs who are arriving in Armenia today to fulfill their direct responsibilities.
According to Vardanyan, OSCE Minsk Group wages a policy of 'double standards.' "We oppose such policy that encourages Azerbaijan for more provocations," he said.
The OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs Igor Popov of Russia, James Warlick of USA and Jacques Faure of France are arriving in Armenia today, on February 5. The mediators are expected to meet with President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan and Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian.
