Yerevan (Yerkir) - President Serzh Sargsyan's speech at the 12th
congress of the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) can be only
welcomed, ARF Bureau representative Hrant Margaryan told journalists
following the congress.

He underlined that the president's words convey some hope that Armenia
will be more prudent further, while exposing with Turkey.

Speaking at the RPA congress, Sargsyan said that "Armenia is consistent
in its stance on relations' establishment with Turkey, which does not
imply oblivion of Genocide issue." Sargsyan said that the Protocols
should be ratified within a reasonable time, "their protraction by
Turkey leads to Armenia's accurate response in accordance with norms
of international law."
