The Armenian Revolutionary Federation (Dashnaktsutyun) announced on Monday its decision to pull out of Armenia’s governing coalition, citing “insurmountable fundamental disagreements” with President Serzh Sarkisian over his conciliatory policy toward Turkey.
The dramatic move followed a Saturday meeting between Sarkisian and two Dashnaktsutyun leaders, Hrant Markarian and Armen Rustamian. According to the latter, Sarkisian briefed them on the essence of the still unpublicized “roadmap” for gradually normalizing Turkish-Armenian relations. “The president’s explanations did not satisfy us,” Rustamian said on Monday.
