 Armenia will join the Customs Union and will hardly integrate into Europe in the near future.  This is the reality we must accept, the leader of the Armenian National Congress (ANC), the first President of Armenia Levon Ter-Petriosyan said at an ANC rally in Liberty Square on Saturday.

"The problem here is that we need a government that will make best of the opportunities the Customs Union will offer. I don't think that Serzh Sargsyan and his team can do it. They don't care for our national interests. They are not our native government but a group of occupants who have usurped power in Armenia. Sargsyan is no longer reputed as a serious partner in the world. So, we need drastic changes so as to improve our reputation," Ter-Petrosyan said.

Ter-Petrosyan believes that each new day of Sargsyan's stay in power is a new loss for Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. "So, it is time for him to resign and for us to elected a new reliable and serious leader. I think it is high time for us to change the government. Never before have our people hated the government as strongly as they do now. Sargsyan himself admitted it," Ter-Petrosyan said, implying Sargsyan's last statement that 80% of people in Armenia are against the pension reform.

Ter-Petrosyan is glad to see that civil society in Armenia is becoming stronger and that the parliamentary groups of Armenian National Congress, Prosperous Armenia, ARFD and Heritage are beginning to cooperate. "The last statement by the leader of Prosperous Armenia Gagik Tsarukyan was quite symptomatic in this respect. I don't think that Tsarukyan is worse than Bidzina Ivanishvili who peacefully changed the government in Georgia or Renat Akhmetov who prevented Yanukovich from imposing a state of emergency in Ukraine. I think that it is good time for us to change the government. Simply, we must consider the best way to do it. The ANC is ready to cooperate with all forces. I hope that next time we will be here with some other parties. This rally may give start to a serious process," Ter-Petrosyan said.
