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”
The presidential election in the U.S. differs from the previous ones with stiff competition and high level of democracy. The future of America depends on this election, Richard Giragosian, Head of the Center for Regional Studies, told media, Monday.
"Incumbent president of USA, Democrat Barack Obama will win the election," he said. Giragosian said that the Armenian-American
relations will remain as stable as before. The issue of recognition of the Armenian Genocide is still referred indirectly in the relations of the two countries.
"One should not pin hopes with the presidential candidate in the issue of Genocide. No matter who will come to power, there will be no progress in the given issue. The Armenia-U.S. relations will be dynamically developing till 2015, the centennial of the Armenian
Genocide," Giragosian said.
He said that the Armenian lobby is not satisfied with the U.S. authorities and it is a challenge for the authorities, because a discontented citizen is the most impartial voter. He said that the Armenian community in the USA mainly supports Democrats rather than Republicans.
