Armenia: Sargsyan May Face United Opposition On Karabakh Peace Talks


July 22 2009

Armenian opposition parties say that they may form a coalition to
oppose Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan’s position on talks with
Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh territory.

The moderate Heritage Party has announced that it proposed to
ex-President Levon Ter Petrosian’s Armenian National Congress and the
ultra-nationalist Armenian Revolutionary Federation-Dashnaktsutiun
(ARF) that they present a united front against the Sargsyan

"We are waiting to hear [from the ANC and Dashnaktsutiun]," Heritage
Party leader Armen Martirosian told a July 21 news conference,
A1plus reported.

ARF and the ANC have a long history of confrontation, but their
positions on current political issues such as the Nagorno-Karabakh
talks and Yerevan’s recent city council elections increasingly
overlap. ARF, a former member of the government coalition, has so
far avoided joining the ANC in its call for Sargsyan to step down,
but has pushed for the resignation of Armenia’s foreign minister,
Edward Nalbandian.

“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
