Levon Ter-Petrossian Not Really Sorry, but Quite Inspiring…

In his 1 hour-long speech on the November 16 radical opposition rally, the First President of Armenia Levon Ter-Petrossian addressed the charges, claims and accusations brought against him by the supporters of the current administration, especially President Robert Kocharyan and Prime Ministers Serge Sargsyan, responding to them mostly using extracts from documents written by Robert Kocharyan or under his supervision, thus clearly depicting the incumbent president as a liar, person deprived of principles and any sense of decency. The First president avoided even addressing any of the charges by Serge Sargsyan, bouncing them back by saying, that all these charges are as much addressed to Serge Sargsyan himself, as a key member of Ter-Petrossian’s government. The First President didn’t sound sorry at all, when saying “sorry” only for bringing Kocharyan and Sargsyan into the Armenian government, which he called a “disaster”.


Armenian Opposition Promoting Racism?

According to UN International Conventions, “the term “racial discrimination” shall mean any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, color, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.” [1]

I am by now sick and tired of speaking about the negative effects of inciting division and hatred in the society with phrases like: “Karabakh clan”, or speaking about “Karabakhgtsis” taking over Armenia.
