Nikol Pashinyan: In the new Armenia there will be no division into  enemies, insiders and outsiders

Nikol Pashinyan: In the new Armenia there will be no division into  enemies, insiders and outsiders

ArmInfo.In the new Armenia there will be no division into enemies, insiders and outsiders. Acting Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan told reporters  referring to the appointment of former Deputy Head of Police Hunan  Poghosyan to the post of governor of Syunik region, at a fair  exhibition of Syrian-Armenian works "Breath of  Syrian-Armenian  Culture in Yerevan" on North Avenue 

The prime minister recalled his statement yesterday that Armenia is  entering a new phase. "There is a time to build barricades and time  to disassemble them. Today we have entered the period of dismantling  the barricades, and the question here is not in the person of Hunan  Poghosyan, this is a political message and it is that there will be  no division into enemies, ours and yours. There are no flawless  people in Armenia. I don't remember an appointment that wouldn't  cause a rumor. One is too young, the other is tall, the third is  short, I repeat, there are no flawless people. There will not be  flawless appointments. We must involve the potential of the Armenian  people in the development of Armenia", the acting PM of Armenia Nikol  Pashinyan stressed.

At the same time, according to him, everyone in Armenia is equal  before the law - everyone will be responsible for their actions,  regardless of positions and posts.

In response to the remark that yesterday the Syunik people blocked  the road to protest against the appointment of Hunan Poghosyan to the  post of the head of the region, Pashinyan noted with a smile: "Not  the Syunik people blocked the road, but the members of our party."

Today, theoretically, Pashinyan did not rule out the involvement of  RPA members in the work of the Cabinet. "We state that we will not  refuse personnel because they are from the RPA, and I have already  made appointments from RPA members and there is nothing sensational  in this either, "the acting prime minister said. At the same time, he  ruled out that the former head of the police, Vladimir Gasparyan,  would be appointed to any post.

To recall, yesterday on the sitting of the government, Prime Minister  Nikol Pashinyan stated that Hunan Poghosyan's appointment to the post  of the head of Syunik may seem strange for many people. However, as  Pashinyan pointed out, there should not be "political racism" in  Armenia and everyone should be equal before the law. "I think it's  very important that as a result of the revolution that took place in  the country, no one considers his life in Armenia ended, and in  accordance with this logic, I believe that we in Armenia should not  allow the development of such a phenomenon that can be called  political racism when people are initially subjected to certain  harassment only because they occupied positions, carried out certain  activities with representatives of the former government. In our  government there are also people who had such a connection. The time  has come for full consolidation. There is time to build barricades  and time to disassemble them, and I hope that we are getting closer  to this line, "the Prime Minister explained. At the same time, he  stressed that such an approach does not mean indulgences towards any  of the current or former officials. "In Armenia, everyone is equal  before the law, there are no untouchables either from current or  former officials, or from ordinary citizens, and this should be  understood," Pashinyan said.
