/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Armenia’s position on protocols is quite explainable,
said Eduard Sharmazanov, spokesman for the ruling Republican Party
of Armenia.

"Turkey has always used the language of preconditions. So, it’s logical
that it should be the first to ratify the protocols," he told a news
conference in Yerevan.

"Turkish parliament will announce the final decision on the protocols
on December 7, the day when Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Ergodan is
scheduled to meet U.S. President Barack Obama. If the decision is
negative the meeting will hardly take place, since the U.S. stand on
normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations is well-known," Sharmazanov
said, adding that Armenia will never make unilateral concessions.

He also emphasized that worldwide recognition of the Armenian Genocide
remains one of the RA’s foreign policy priorities.

“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
