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”
At his Facebook page Armenia's Education Minister Armen Ashotyan has disproved a publication in one of the newspapers, according to which they are
currently discussing a problem of his appointing Armenia's ambassador to France.
'I have never applied to president of Armenia with such a request, and we have never discussed this problem>, - Ashotyan said and added that like any Armenian he entertains warm feelings for France and French people.
Minister of Education and Science of Armenia Armen Ashotyan may be appointed as Ambassador to France, a Yerevan-based Chorrord Inqnishkhanutyun newspaper reports referring to its own sources.
The paper writes that within five years of his appointed as minister, Ashotyan has thrice applied to President Serzh Sargsyan for appointment as ambassador to any country, including in the CIS. The president has trice declined his request. However, after the presidential election, the president is expected to study Ashotyan's request.
