YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 1, NOYAN TAPAN. "There is a serious political,
civilization crisis in Armenia. Until it has been settled society
will always express a complaint, the authorities will try by making an
imitation of some action to show to society that allegedly they care
for society's needs," former RA Foreign Minister Alexander Arzumanian
stated in his interview to Radio Liberty. In his affirmation, the
situation will be always strained until a legitimate power is formed,
until the constitutional order is restored in Armenia.

In connection with predictions on a hot political autumn A. Arzumanian
said that the number of public events will increase in autumn and in
that respect perhaps the opposition will be more active: already on
September 18 the Armenian National Congress will hold a big rally.

As to the Nagorno Karabakh problem, according to the former Foreign
Minister, "what is on the negotiations table today is not acceptable
either for Armenia or for Nagorno Karabakh. Therefore the opposition
first of all demands resignation from the authorities to make it
possible to introduce a change in the negotiations process.

According to A. Arzumanian, the only right step the authorities can do
is resignation and holding of free, fair elections, through which the
people itself will form a power representing it and little by little,
step by step will solve all problems faced by Armenia.
