YEREVAN. – The information that I had a meeting with Robert Kocharyan has already been dismissed. But I do not rule out the possibility of a meeting with all political forces and individuals in the near future—including with [ex-Presidents] Robert Kocharyan, Serzh Sargsyan, and Levon Ter-Petrosyan. Artur Vanetsyan, former Director of the National Security Service (NSS) of Armenia and chairman of the opposition Homeland Party, mentioned this in a conversation with journalists Friday after leaving the NSS building.
To the remark that when he was the director of the NSS he had accused the representatives of the former authorities—including Kocharyan—of corruption and overthrowing the constitutional order, Vanetsyan responded: "Political processes assume meetings with all political forces and individuals."
And to the remark that Robert Kocharyan said that he did not rule out that the people could change power in Armenia by blocking the streets for the second time, Artur Vanetsyan responded: "I am definitely convinced that there will be very active political processes in the near future, during which we will see the developments that will take place. In fact, the country is in a very complicated, dire situation."
