Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan made a major PR appearance at the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) yesterday.
He appeared as a ruler, who has successfully settled domestic problems and was cautiously optimistic on Karabakh. He appared as the president of a nation, which is eager to learn from the international community, but also ready to teach tolerance to the Europeans.
He addressed most pressing issues Armenia faces – blasted Turkish foreign policy, reaffirmed Armenia’s determination to continue using nuclear power and even publicly humiliated Armenian opposition MP Zarouhi Postanjian for demanding Sargsian’s resignation in front of PACE MPs.
Frankly, I’m impressed by Sargsian’s speech and answers at the PACE, even though I understand this is all just an illusion, an appearance.
