Georgia's Armenians neutral about political developments in country

PanARMENIAN.Net - Georgia's Armenian community assumed a neutral position on the background of recent internal political developments in the country, the head of Javakhk Union stated.

As Shirak Torosyan told a news conference in Yerevan, “Georgia's Armenians are inert over the political life of the country as the opposition does not promise to resolve their problems, specifically regarding the status of the Armenian church or the integration of Armenians into the Georgian society. Under the circumstances, indifference can be justified.”

“Javakhk Armenians are also neutral, as no opposition representative was ever concerned about the issues of Armenians,” Torosyan stated. According to him, Georgia's Armenian population does not care which force will assume power in the country, unless it intends to tackle their problems.

“Despite construction of roads and gasification in the region, unemployment and the issue of the Armenian language remain one of the main problems in Javakhk. Besides, local authorities are constantly controlling Armenian activists' actions, arresting young activists,” Torosyan said.
