The inflow of the population from Armenia is a serious problem which the authorities understand very well, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan said at the 10th congress of the Yerkrapah Union of Volunteers when replying questions of participants in the congress held in Yerevan today.
"On the other hand, I do not accept the speculation of this issue for political purposes. I do not accept the solution of this issue, beating on the knees and crying.
It is clear for everybody that this process has a temporary nature and it shows various tendencies of development in different times", - Sargsyan said,
"For instance, for 2013 the negative balance of migration was 25% or 31,000 people. And this figure is gradually decreasing. And the leadership of the country have been taking all possible measures for further decrease of the population migration from the country", - he said.
