Emigration is a threat to national security and the fight against
emigration should become a national platform, member of ARF
Dashnaktsutyun parliamentary faction Artsvik Minasyan told reporters,
while commenting on the discussions on improvement of policy aimed
at reduction of emigration in Armenia.

Minasyan noted that all forces - authorities, opposition, NGOs and
the Armenian Church - should look for ways to combat emigration.

"People emigrate from Armenia because of unemployment, low wages,
distrust in justice as well as uncertainty to the future," he said.

Minasyan said that some proposals from ARFD's emigration reduction
program have been included in government programs.

"Our program focuses on creation of jobs and we demand that the
government release a "roadmap" of jobs," he noted.
