PanARMENIAN.Net - ARF Dashnaktsutyun's Armenian Cause Political
Affairs Office Director slammed the authorities over the absence of
clear-cut domestic and foreign policy in 2012.

`Ambassadors play a major role in Armenia's foreign policy. Some of
them have extensive involvement in the country's policymaking, while
others only promote personal interests,'Giro Manoyan said, adding that
2012 was notable for anti-Armenian propaganda by Azerbaijan.

He criticized the lack of progress in Armenian-Turkish relations due
to the RA ruling authorities' reluctance to make a change.

As for Armenian-Iranian ties, Mr. Manoyan attached special importance
to the economic cooperation.
