Armenian Government Opposes Establishing Reunification Day With Kara


January 09, 2013 | 15:50

YEREVAN. – The Government of Armenia is against the proposal to set
December 1 as a Reunification Day holiday.

MPs Khosrov Harutyunyan, Artashes Geghamyan, and Hayk Babukhanyan
have proposed a bill to mark December 1 as Reunification Day because
during their joint session that was convened on December 1, 1989, the
Supreme Council of Armenia and the National Council of Artsakh-that is,
Karabakh-had declared the reunification of Armenian SSR and Artsakh.

The Armenian MFA, however, has prepared a negative conclusion with
respect to this bill, and this conclusion is submitted for approval
during Thursday’s Cabinet meting. Pursuant to the conclusion,
if this bill is passed, Azerbaijan will use it as an additional
argument to substantiate its deconstructive position, and it will
present the Karabakh issue not as a conflict between self-determined
Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan, but rather as a territorial dispute
between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

“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
