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
Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
President Serzh Sargsyan should come forward with a statement and beg Armenians not to leave the country, the leader of the Democratic Party of Armenia, Aram Sargsyan, said at today's press-conference.
"Armenia has been emptying at present, and even the authorities confess that a little bit more than 2 million people remained in the country. For this reason, Sargsyan should ask Armenians to stand a little bit more till improvement of social and economic situation in the country. However, the authorities have been doing nothing in this direction. On the contrary, they have been trying to hide the created situation", - Sargsyan said and added that development of industry and opening of job places are necessary for improvement of social and economic situation.
When estimating the activity of the government, Sargsyan said they must not speak about problems for 4 years, but observe implementation of tasks or create conditions for their implementation. He thinks that in this case there were no conditions to fulfill the needed work. He also added that if
the president does not punish embezzlers of state property, his criticism will be understood like an election PR.
