OSKANYAN WILL NOT BE IN NEW GOVERNMENT

The foreign minister of Armenia Vardan Oskanyan stated December 1
that after the parliamentary election in 2007 there will be a new
prime minister, a new government with its new perceptions of all the
policies, including the foreign policy. However, if Vardan Oskanyan
is offered to be part of the new government, he will refuse. `10
years is the maximum for a post. A new, fresh force is needed, fresh
thoughts are needed.'
