June 19, 2012 – 12:25 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net – According to Zhamanak paper, MP from Prosperous
Armenia party, former foreign minister Vartan Oskanian doesn’t have
a house in Armenia; instead he has a mansion in California’s Glendale
city. Ex-minister mentioned this in the application submitted to the
Central Election Committee (CEC).

Oskanian purchased the house on June 3, 1996 with USD 325-350 thous.

It’s a two-storied building with 9 rooms built in 1975. The money
former minister paid for the house was assessed large capital
investment. Apparently, he couldn’t have afforded the property only
with the salary he received then, the paper says.

The price of the house almost doubled over the past few years.

Presently it costs USD 700 thous, which is considered rather expensive
in Glendale.

Though Oskanian is said to have neither a car, nor property exceeding
USD 8 million, he had USD 1 mln.100 thous. in his bank account and
8 thous. square meter area in Armenia’s town of Tsaghkadzor as of
March 1, the paper claims.

“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
