I HAVE COME TO BUILD BRIDGES, RA PRIME MINISTER STATES AT ZHARANGUTIUN’S
JU LY 11
The Armenian authorities and opposition have a common goal and "common
verges" of working together to achieve that purpose. RA Prime Minister
Tigran Sargsian stated in his speech made at the July 11 congress of
the Zharangutiun (Heritage) party.
"I have not come to say that there are issues, over which we have
different views. I have come to build bridges. Burning bridges is easy,
but building them is difficult," the Prime Minister stated. According
to him, the country needs a strong, constructive opposition, as it is
a guarantee of existence of a strong society and strong state. "We
are not afraid of criticism and bold proposals: we need them,"
According to T. Sargsian, the common goal of the authorities and
the opposition is to see Armenia as a democratic, legal, developed
state. "In the current home political situation I propose accentuating
not points separating, but those uniting us. Let us not permit
our goals to be destroyed in the noise of struggle, become a small
change of political speculation. I hope my appeal will be perceived
correctly. Cooperation doors are always open before you," the Prime
Minister assured those present.
At present Zharangutiun is the only opposition political force in
the parliament, which, according to T. Sargsian, supposes additional
responsibility towards its own electorate, extra-parliamentary
opposition, and its country.
