Armenia – Jan 15 2022

First President Levon Ter-Petrosyan has responded to iLur's question about the domestic political situation in Armenia. He said as follows:

1) The [PM Nikol] Pashinyan regime seeks to retain power at all costs without discriminating in means.

2) The opposition, led by [ex-Presidents Robert] Kocharyan and [Serzh] Sargsyan, despite internal contradictions, seeks to seize power at all costs—also without discriminating in means.

3) Accordingly, in all three camps there is a complete lack of awareness of national interest, the inevitable consequence of which is new disasters threatening our nation.

4) The search for a way out is the obligation of solely the conflicting parties and the intelligentsia.

5) The remaining layers of the society do not have leverage at the moment to have an effect on the situation. The active players of political science and media serve almost entirely the interests of these three camps.

“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
