The authorities are again playing with the reputation of our country, Chairman of the Democratic Party of Armenia (HDK) said today when commenting on Armenia’s decision not to participate in multinational wargames in Georgia.
“If you continually try to sit on two or four chairs, you will gain nothing, there is no certainty, there is no strategy,” said Aram Sargsyan. “How often have you seen authorities consult with intelligent people and listen to their opinion? Likewise, I cannot understand the policy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which can in no way decide on the matter of Nakhijevan, for example,” he continued.
“Until 12 o’clock, you are a member of one security system, after 12 you switch to another system. Can we be sure that Russia can always be the guarantor of Armenia’s security? No, it is impossible, as Russia’s interests change rapidly, and we can say that cooperation with Russia in the security sphere does not have prospects for us,” said Boris Bavasardyan, the national coordinator of the Eastern Partnership Program’s (EaP) Civil Society Platform.
