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”
The adoption of obligatory medical insurance system in Armenia would mellow corruption risks in this sphere, deputy of the parliament Khosrof Harutyunyan said over today's parliamentary discussion of the draft budget 2013.
He also added that taking into consideration today's high tariffs for medical services and their unavailability for ordinary citizens, it would be rather expedient to pass to the obligatory medical insurance. "The state order system in the healthcare sphere was deformed today, and absolute lawlessness has been reigning here. The vicious machineries result in the corruption risks in this sphere. The effectiveness of using of the allocated funds should be fully controlled by the competent bodies", - he said.
For his part, the first deputy finance minister, Pavel Safaryan, said that the issue has been discussed in the Armenian government for a long period of time and everybody agrees to the necessity of adoption of the obligatory medical insurance. He hopes that resolving of this issue will be in the center of attention of Armenia's Health Ministry in 2013.
