Acting Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan today met with Tigran Arzakantsyan as part of political consultations with extra-parliamentary forces.
Nikol Pashinyan - Dear Mr. Arzakantsyan, I am pleased to see you. Thank you for accepting the invitation. I am sorry that your registration during the electoral campaign was declared invalid. I hope you know that the decision made by the Central Electoral Commission stems from the legislation of the Republic of Armenia.
I would like to learn your views about the future course of political life in Armenia. I also wish to hear your opinion about ways of building closer ties of interaction between extra-parliamentary forces and the government. Thank you.
Tigran Arzakantsyan - Thank you for the invitation. What matters most to me is that our party has developed noteworthy development programs. I would like to discuss with the new leadership and the new government issues related to Artsakh’s education system and economic development.
I consider myself a patriotic Armenian; I would like to see that my knowledge and investments proved to be effective for my homeland. I wish to serve my country and follow up the talks with the Government of Armenia. Our political teammates, too, would like to cooperate on all these issues.
Security is what matters most. Economic development, elections come and go, while life continues. We must continue to uphold and develop our country in every direction. The election results are clear to all of us, but this is not the end of life. We are prepared to cooperate effectively and discuss any issue of national concern.
The interlocutors discussed ways of tapping the potentialities and opportunities available nationwide, as well as the prospects for further cooperation.
