Opposition parliamentary forces spoke about two tools to counter the  current government of Armenia

Opposition parliamentary forces spoke about two tools to counter the  current government of Armenia

ArmInfo.Opposition parliamentary factions spoke about two tools with which they intend to counteract the current government.

Thus, at a meeting with journalists on October 25, secretary of the  parliamentary faction of the "Armenia" bloc Artsvik Minasyan recalled  that the opposition has always stated that it will use both  parliamentary and extra-parliamentary tools in its struggle.

"Today, we have gathered here to present the two tools that the "I  Have Honor" and "Armenia" factions intend to use. One of these tools  is the formation of a commission of inquiry in the parliament, which  will study the validity of transferring funds from the Hayastan  All-Armenian Fund to the Armenian government 

We are talking about the funds that were collected immediately after  September 27, 2020 to support our state during the war. The second  tool that will be used is the discussion, in accordance with the  Constitution, of an urgent issue of public interest and concerning  the situation on the line of contact between Armenia and Azerbaijan  and the problems associated with demarcation. Nowadays, when this  issue becomes more and more important in the conditions of excessive  information flows, we intend to hold one of the most effective  discussions, but also to finally propose a draft statement addressed  not only to the international community, to our citizens , but also  to the executive power in terms of their fulfillment of  constitutional obligations, "Minasyan said.

In turn, MP from the "Armenia" bloc Aram Vardevanyan, reminded that,  according to the convention adopted and ratified by all countries  (including Armenia and Azerbaijan), the document signed under the  threat of use of force is considered invalid. "This is one of the  simplest principles of the international community. Azerbaijan's  non-return of Armenian prisoners of war is the same language of  threats," he said.

The MP also expressed his conviction that Russia cannot agree to a  conspiracy against Armenia. "Each country is sovereign and  responsible for its actions. When the Armenian authorities do not  respond to the threats of Azerbaijan, what can be demanded from  Russia? The Armenian authorities should mark the" red lines ". The  authorities are doing everything to get rid of the sovereignty that  they fear so much," - stressed Vardevanyan.

In turn, MP from the "I Have the Honor" bloc Tigran Abrahamyan drew  attention to the fact that an urgent discussion on the topic of  borders and delimitation, initiated by the "Armenia" and "I Have the  Honor ". He stated that the situation around Armenia and Artsakh is  more than alarming and before resorting to this method, the  opposition tried to discuss all issues with the participation of  representatives of power bodies (Ministry of Defense, General Staff,  NSS, General Prosecutor's Office).

"However, the authorities did everything to organize an escape from  reality, not to participate in these discussions and avoiding to  answer the questions of public concern. Obviously, the authorities  have something to hide, they want to disguise the processes at the  border, and they do not want the opposition MPs to fix what is being  said at different platforms," Abrahamyan said, adding that the  evidence of this fact was confirmed after the Armenian Defense  Ministry did not allow him to visit the Sotk-Khoznavar section of the  border.

The oppositionist believes that today it is important to understand  what measures the authorities have taken to restore the security  system in Armenia and Artsakh, to what extent the country is ready to  withstand potential threats and challenges.

At the same time, he drew attention to the fact that he is well aware  of how much work could have been done on the front line over the past  period, but even 7 months after the war, the Armenian side had  unprotected sections of borders, which led to the invasion of enemy  forces into the sovereign territories of the Republic of Armenia.

"As for the delimitation, to my surprise, the Armenian authorities  announced that they were ready for it, referring to Soviet maps. The  problem is not that delimitation is not needed and the opposition is  against the peace process. what period the reference is made during  the Soviet era, there were many changes that did not correspond to  the Constitutions of Armenia, Azerbaijan and the USSR. it will not  lead to anything good. Issues around Armenia and Artsakh should be  resolved in a single package, although, as we understand,  delimitation can be carried out separately. The rush of the  authorities raises questions here. It is not clear to which maps the  reference is made. During the Soviet regime, there were many changes  that did not correspond to the Constitutions of Armenia, Azerbaijan  and the USSR. We studied maps from the 1920s to the collapse of the  USSR, and they have a lot of features. We think that haste will not  lead to anything good. Issues around Armenia and Artsakh should be  resolved in a single package, although, as we understand,  delimitation can be carried out separately.

If there is a document, it is not clear what tasks it will solve. It  is necessary to exclude a process that would block the possibility of  resolving the issue of thinning the status of Artsakh on the basis of  the principle of the right of peoples to self-determination. It is  necessary to understand what principles the will be guided by, what  goals they pursue. Everything must be made public in order to avoid  the situation that was on November 9, 2020. We will make public those  facts that worry us, which the authorities do not take into account.  Otherwise, we risk entering into a process that in the next decades  will create a dangerous situation for Armenia. The current  authorities narrow the possibilities in the future to find more  favorable solutions for the Armenian side, "Abrahamyan assured.

He also commented on today's statement by RA Prime Minister Nikol  Pashinyan that Armenia has no intentions to seize the territories of  neighboring states. According to Abrahamyan, in this way, Pashinyan  wants to show that there are no revanchist sentiments in Armenia,  which Azerbaijan has repeatedly warned against in the recent period.
