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”
After the presidential election Paruyr Hayrikyan will become either an MP or European Integration Minister, presidential candidate Vardan Sedrakyan told journalists on Wednesday.
Sedrakyan, who is sure that he will secure over 80% of the votes, believes that Hayrikyan and the other candidates Raffi Hovhannisian and Hrant Bagratyan are all the allies of Armenia's President Serzh Sargsyan and are acting as dummy targets.
"Hayrikyan is not a rival to me. If what the great Armenian sociologist Aharon Adibekyan says is true, none of the candidates can compete with my 81%. Hovhannisian is luckier: the authorities like him and let him meet with wide audiences - something Bagratyan is not allowed to do," Sedrakyan said.
