Richard Kirakosian said that the threat to Armenia’s national security
comes from inside. Mr. Kirakosian argued that corrpuption is more
mortal threat to armenia than the abroad actors.
"The greatest threat to Armenia’s national security comes not from
abroad, but from inside. Armenian statehood is most threatened by
global regress, caused by corruption and so-called "good management"
Kirakosian further considers that the membership of Turkey the European
Union will be beneficial to Armenia, as the borders of the EU will
draw nearer to Armenia and Turkey become constrained by the European
"strait-jacket". Mr. Kirkosian claimed that Turkey’s EU membership
will make contribution to Turkey-Armenia security relations.
