YEREVAN. – Presidential candidate from the ruling Republican Party of Armenia Armen Sarkissian is not aware whether there are any political prisoners in Armenia.
“I know that there are people who are perceived as political prisoners, and I know different opinions of the international agencies. I think that there should not be political prisoners in our country,” Sarkissian said.
As reported earlier, Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan received Ambassador to UK Armen Sarkissian on January 19 and offered him to become a candidate for the post of the president from the ruling Republican Party of Armenia. Armen Sarkissian, in his turn, has asked the President for some time to make a final decision in this regard.
