When asked by a reporter if a new bill being debated in the Armenian
National Assembly that would allow for the president to call in
the army during a state of emergency wouldn’t lead to another March
1st tragedy, Union for Self-Determination (AIM) party leader Paruyr
Hayrikyan said that it wasn’t the army but the army’s commanders that
would bear any such responsibility for civilian deaths.

The bill in questioned was introduced in the parliament yesterday by
the Minister of Justice Hrayr Tovmasyan.

“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
