Interests of Armenian and Azeri Opposition Coincide


YEREVAN, APRIL 15. ARMINFO. First of all, the executive power should
make conclusions. We should watch our work in a new way, Armenia’s DM
Serzh Sargsyan says in an interview to Golos Armenii commenting on the
present internal political crisis in Armenia. You know, nobody neither
the president nor prime minister or any minister said that there is no
problem in their sphere and everything is OK. There are numerous
problems. Specifically in my sphere there are many problems but we are
stemming from a principle: everything becomes known in
comparison. Otherwise a question will undoubtedly rise: “But who are
the judges?” From this point of view if we compare 2004 and 2000,
progress is obvious. We should aspire the progress be more noticeable,
but at the same time we should and will tame those is trying to play
on the people’s emotions, who is trying to flatter the people.

Sargsyan quotes Armenian poet Paruyr Sevak’s words “to flatter the
people is a crime”, and Georgian poet Shota Rustaveli’s words “Every

It seems to them that they can do something. But it is obvious: these
people do not even have an ability to organize a meeting. All their

Sargsyan refutes the opinion that the opposition is acting in unison
with Azerbaijan. No, certainly there is no direct connection. Here
there may not be two opinions. Another question is if the interests

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
