YEREVAN, MAY 20, ARMENPRESS. The governments of Armenia and the United States are working in various areas that are aimed at promoting democracy, building democratic institutions, the fight against corruption and economic development, the United States Ambassador to Armenia Lynne Tracy said in remarks at the Armenian Forum for Democracy.

“The United States gained a good partner in person of the Armenian government. We are working in various areas that are aimed at promoting democracy, building democratic institutions, the fight against corruption, and economic development. And something which is the most important, I think is the investments in human capital. These are absolutely greatly needed. You can’t achieve success in other areas if you don’t make investments in human capital,” the US Ambassador said.

Speaking on the Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s view that citizens must be prepared to be participants in democracy, the Ambassador said this is an important factor for democracy to develop.

“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
