ArmInfo.The first president of Armenia, Levon Ter- Petrosyan, did not change his approach, calling on the people to capitulate. Armen Rustamyan, member of the RA National Assembly from the "Armenia" opposition faction, member of the ARF "Dashnaktsutyun" party, stated this to journalists on September 27.
According to him, everyone should speak out on the issue of state security, and Levon Ter-Petrosyan is no exception, despite the fact that there is nothing new in his statements. "In any case, experience shows that our people must be united, in fact, what the first president himself says. The second part of his speech is incomprehensible, according to which the authorities and the opposition should enter into a dialogue. The question arises: the dialogue around what? Unfortunately, Levon Ter-Petrosyan bypassed this issue," the MP noted, adding that negotiations with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan would lead to the same result as the first president says, namely, to capitulation, since according to Ter - Petrosyan, this is inevitable if we want to live in Armenia. Rustamyan stressed that Levon Ter-Petrosyan has been talking about the inevitability of this step since the 1990s. "One of his main theses is that "our defense lies in our defenselessness. We've all been through this, perhaps the current generation does not remember all this. With his statements, he tried to instill the idea that the Armenian people are an incapable people," the MP noted.
Rustamyan also noted that the phrase "painful decisions" is incomprehensible. "If you are offered one of several options, this is not your choice, this is their choice," Rustamyan said. At the same time, the MP welcomed the first meeting of the Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II with the ex-presidents of Armenia and Artsakh. "With this meeting, they are obliged to prove that the people can unite. If they fail to do so, we will face very serious problems, and we must not let things come to this. "In the end, we must show that our people have the ability to unite, which will lead to victory," Rustamyan emphasized.
