Head of ACNIS: Philosophy of ignoring strategic core of Armenian problems since 1998 has led to collapse of political system in Armenia

The philosophy of ignoring the strategic core of Armenian problems since 1998 has led to the collapse of the political system in Armenia, Manvel Sargsyan, Head of the Armenian Center for National and International Studies, told ArmInfo. 

"The collapse was accompanied by full obedience of the country to the external factors. One could observe the consequent consolidation of the process of take-over in Armenia by the Karabakh military and political structure, expansion of the Armenian Genocide international recognition problem in the Armenian-Turkish relations, full military obedience of Armenia to the Russian factor. Armenia's system of security and foreign policy fell under the dictate of the USA-Russia-France triarchy", he stressed.

Sargsyan is convinced that such a political concept of Armenia has deprived official Yerevan of the abilities and capacities to resolve the key Armenian problems - the Karabakh conflict and recognition of the Armenian Genocide. He also thinks that the political power in Armenia, the society and the foreign policy have found themselves as hostages of the foreign Armenian problems.

"This has resulted from the fact that the political elite realized that it is impossible to build a state in Armenia and they named the foreign obstacles (Karabakh and Genocide) as the key reasons of that.  They started to make wrong and opinionated statements like "it will be impossible to build a legal state and ensure its economic development until the Karabakh conflict and the problem of Armenian-Turkish relations are settled. "In the meantime, they did not consider a single circumstance directly related to Armenia as an obstacle to the state building," said the analyst.
