‘TSARUKIAN ALWAYS SPOKE WARMLY ABOUT ARMENIAN-RUSSIAN RELATIONS’
Armenian Foreign Ministry officials conducting negotiations did not
present any information about the processes relating to the Customs
Union and the European Union so no one can say what will happen in the
National Assembly when a document about Armenia’s joining the Customs
Union is submitted there. Secretary of Prosperous Armenia Party (BHK)
parliamentary faction Ms. Naira Zohrabian expressed such an opinion
during a talk with the correspondent of Aysor.am.
“Only when the political forces receive information, comments can
be made about how parties, in particular BHK, will vote in the
parliament. When officials provide us with clear information (and
not assumptions, forecasts or good wishes) about those processes,
then we will state about our position,” Naira Zohrabian said.
She noted that when a political decision is made, when the Russian
president declares that Armenia made a political decision, the
parliamentary majority of the National Assembly will vote unanimously
for whatever is submitted to the NA.
“In this case, it was important that the matter be discussed with
political forces before adoption of the political decision,” N.
As regards the statements made by BHK leader Gagik Tsarukian about
Armenian-Russian relations, Naira Zohrabian said that Tsarukian has
always spoken warmly about relations with Russia, regardless of the
decision taken in Moscow on September 3.
