Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.

The Armenian Parliament will shortly consider the projects to create interim committees for inquiring into the last gas deals with Russia and the March 1 2008 events.
The former project will be considered today.
The MPs will also consider the ARFD's initiative to study the problem of Nairit Plant.
To remind, the last gas deals with Russia have resulted in growing electricity tariffs in Armenia and have caused a wave protests among the local population. The March 1 2008 events followed the election of Serzh Sargsyan as President and claimed 10 lives. As regards Nairit, that company has lots of debts and is no longer able to pay wages to its employees.
