UNIQUE CONSENSUS

According to GEVORG POGHOSYAN, Head of the Armenian Sociological
Association, "There are several key issues over which we have
consensus, i.e. almost 90 percent identical approaches. And Karabakh
is one of them.

We conducted polls on different occasions for 10-15 years continuously,
and I can definitely say that this is really the question that doesn’t
allow for any divergence of opinions. We always had the same picture,
with fluctuations of 2-3 percent.

The recent polls conducted in Armenia and Artsakh also come to show
that 95 percent of the population doesn’t imagine Karabakh as part
of Azerbaijan. They find that the Nagorno Karabakh Republic may be
independent; it may form part of Armenia and even be an independent
political unit in the Commonwealth of Independent States, but it
should never be ruled by Azerbaijan."

“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
