Deutsche Welle: Oskanian sees no sense in trying to dispute the
charges laid against him

Former Foreign Minister of Armenia, member of Prosperous Armenia
party Vartan Oskanian considers the charges laid against him as an
instance of political persecution.

In an interview to Deutsche Welle (Germany), Oskanian said that the
charges are groundless. A private foundation has received money from a
private person, none of the parties has complained, the money has not
been lost, so, there seems to be no problem. Besides, the charges
concern an incident that took place as long as two years ago. Armenia
is preparing for a presidential race, Oskanian is a member of one of
the key rivals of the ruling party, so, the political motives are
obvious.

Oskanian does not, however, see sense in trying to dispute the
charges. He said that all this is aimed not only against him but
against his party, in particular, and democracy in Armenia, in
general.

Oskanian does not think that the charges laid against him will affect
Prosperous Armenia’s future and he is sure that the party will play a
decisive role during the forthcoming presidential election.
