"Position of our ARF Dashnaktsutyn colleagues, or rather ex-colleagues
is explained by three main points: Pressure from Diaspora, doubts
about recent developments in Armenian -Turkish relations and a wish
to distance themselves from RA authorities," RA NA Republican Party
MP Armen Ashotyan told a news conference in Yerevan.

"ARF Dashnaktsutyun did throw some hints about their intention to
leave coalition. Though I believe the true reason for this step is
shortage of governmental positions, Dashnaktsutyun chose government’s
"neglect of national interests" as an excuse for their leaving," he
said. Ashotyan is confident that by this act Dashnaktsutyun wishes
to shed their image of ruling party, and run as an oppositional force
at next parliamentary elections.

"Summing it all up, recent developments in Armenian-Turkish relations
served as a pretext for Dashnaktytyun to announce their leaving the
coalition. Nevertheless I can assure that RA foreign policy line
remains unchanged, and recent events are another manifestation of
complementary and multivector policy Armenia conducts," Armen Ahotyan
emphasized.
