VARDAN OSKANYAN: THE WEEKS AFTER MARCH 1 WERE THE MOST DIFFICULT OF MY ENTIRE CAREER
ArmInfo. ‘The weeks after March 1 were the most difficult of my entire
career>, Vardan Oskanyan says in his Farewell Speech to MFA Staff.
On the one hand, I am part of an admininstration which, at the end of
the day, is responsible for what happens in this country. On the other
hand, from the beginning of their campaign, I disagreed, publicly and
privately, with the tactics, methods and goals of the opposition>,
the minister says.
‘Now, we must perform our job in the changed environment of the last
several months. When we allowed the political tensions and emotions
of the election and post-election period to reign, they demonstrated
that we sometimes imagine that revolution can be an alternative to
reforms, and that revenge can take precedence over reconciliation. No
one knows better than we in this building that that is false. No one
knows better than we that our domestic strength, integrity, stability,
morality and perseverance are our best – actually our only – calling
cards in the international arena’, V. Oskanyan says.
