RPA: Armenia Should Intensify Its Foreign Policy


July 2

Armenia should put forward more initiatives in its foreign policy and
apply approaches meeting its national interests, the Press Secretary
of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) Eduard Sharmazanov
said speaking of the UN and PACE resolutions on Armenia.

The reason is the active anti-Armenian propaganda carried on by
Azerbaijan and Turkey, he said.

Despite the positive approaches and trends in the work of the Armenian
Foreign Ministry, the foreign policy has been rather reacting than
enterprising during the last years, Sharmazanov said.

He considered Armenian President Serzh Sargsian’s intention to invite
the President of Turkey Abdullah Giul to Armenia-Turkey football
match such an initiative.

Yet, much remains to be done in this respect, Sharmazanov said
stressing the necessity to involve all Armenian embassies, Diaspora
organizations the country’s political forces in this process. "We
are obliged to solve urgent issues of our foreign policy regardless
of our political views and disagreements," Sharmazanov said. -0–
