Kocharyan "coming to power to bring dignified peace" to Armenia


PanARMENIAN.Net - Second President Robert Kocharyan has said that he is "coming to power to bring dignified peace" to Armenia.

The ex-president said earlier he will head a bloc of parties at snap parliamentary elections scheduled for June 20.

Meeting with supporters on Friday, April 23, Kocharyan maintained that nothing is being done to address security matters in the country. According to him, six months after the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, he hasn't heard about security discussions at the National Assembly or government decisions on army reforms.

Kocharyan noted that dangers facing Armenia require the mobilization of all the resources of Armenians in Armenia and abroad.

"The authorities of Armenia can't tell the difference between the important and the unimportant, the primary and the non-primary," he said, adding that "there is a danger of war every day."
