"We must continue our relations with both the West and Russia, not
underestimating our importance for Russia.

In my view one of our mistakes is that we always overestimate Russia’s
role for Armenia and we underestimate Armenia’s role for Russia.

Russia is trying to realize an economic expansion towards the Middle
East; Russian business intends to move towards South and Arabian
world via Armenia. And we must be able to use this factor to advance
our interests in this region," political scientist Ara Papyan believes.

“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
