Eduard Sharmazanov: Robert Kocharyan's assessments are typical to a politician whose views remained in the past

The interview of the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan contained unacceptable and even insulting formulations against the incumbent Government of Armenia, Vice Speaker of Armenian Parliament Eduard Sharmazanov told ArmInfo.    

He thinks that the tonality of the interview demonstrates the lack of real facts confirming Kocharyan's critical assessments. "The insulting tone does not glorify politicians, especially a former president of the country", said Sharmazanov.   

He added that Robert Kocharyan's assessments are retrospective and typical to a politician, whose views remained in the past. "Robert Kocharyan's analyses lack projects meant for the future", he said.     

As regards Kocharyan's criticism against the pension reforms and gas agreements with Russia, Sharmazanov said, "Unlike many politicians, we are taking steps meeting the Armenian citizens' interests and contributing to the country's prosperity".  

To note, in his recent two interviews, the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharyan criticized the incumbent Government's activity in general and Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan's activity in particular. He qualified Tigran Sargsyan as a politician on the downward path. Kocharyan considers the Armenian- Russian gas agreement to be inefficient and the pension reforms to be inexpedient.
