ARMENIAN NATIONAL CONGRESS: THE ELECTORAL SLOGAN OF THE PRESIDENT “TOWARDS SECURE ARMENIA!” HAS DISCREDITED ITSELF
Tuesday, December 18, 14:19
The audiotape of the private conversation between a deputy from
Armenian National Congress Levon Zurabyan and a deputy from Prosperous
Armenia Party Vartan Oskanian is a provocation of the authorities
and secret services, Levon Zurabyan told journalists today.
At the same time he emphasized that the given provocation worked
against the authorities themselves, as they demeaned themselves,
though their purpose was to discredit the opposition. He added with
irony that the slogan put forward by President Serzh Sargsyan “Towards
secure Armenia!” has already discredited itself. “The audiotape of
our conversation and its further publication showed how secure and
safe Armenia is. Perhaps, it is secure and safe only for employees of
secret services”, – Zurabyan said and added that the interception was
organized by secret services under the instruction of the president
of the country. If it is not so, let the authorities investigate and
clear out who published the audiotape in Internet, and after that it
will be easy to find who made the audiotape, Zurabyan said.
He declined to comment on the core of the conversation. “Any attempt
to analyze the core of the conversation will mean that we have gorged
the bait of the authorities”, – Zurabyan said.
