YEREVAN. – There is no opposition between the Armenian government and the ARF Dashnaktsutyun, PM Nikol Pashinyan assured.
He admitted there is a conflict between a part of the ARF and the Ministry of Education, but insisted that those members of ARF have links to the former authorities and the former corrupt system.
“Sometimes you get the impression that there is a conflict between the Armenian government and the ARF. The entire ARF party cannot be judged in the same way, because I have an impression the Armenian government and the ARF have great potential and willingness to cooperate on national issues. At least we have that willingness. I am convinced that we will be able to start a constructive dialogue together with the Dashnaktsutyun, as a pan-Armenian body. As for Armenia, my opinion remains the same, unless the abobve mentioned is stated, ARF will have a vague political future, here in Armenia, ”the Prime Minister said.
Armenian PM added that the government has good relations with the traditional political parties.
“We have great, close relations with the Diaspora agencies, traditional parties. I have positive attitude towards the governing bodies of our three traditional parties, their representatives, and I have a very warm and fraternal attitude towards them,” he added.
