Ishkhan Saghatelyan, MP from the Hayastan faction, representative of ARF General Assembly, told reporters at Republic Square today, September 20.
"There was a very clear mutual understanding on at least two issues. One of them is that there should be one coordinating body - the National Council, a committee that will coordinate all the work, I will talk about it at the rally," he said, unwilling to disclose details.
The MP answered the question: Is Andranik Tevanyan now the leader of the opposition? "We are not gathered here to elect the leader for the opposition, we have gathered here to find a road map to get out of the situation created here. There are certain steps, actions that have been agreed upon, they will be announced at the rally."
Asked whether they were late, he said: "We are three years late. If we had not done what we did, Artsakh would have been given away long ago. We didn't have the strength, we couldn't, now we have come, we have reached this day."
