Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process
The Karabakh Movement has determined the right image of a state and a man, but Armenia no longer meets it, Ashot Manoucharyan, former adviser of the first president of Armenia for national security affairs, told media, Thursday.
He said that the Karabakh Movement must not be associated with a museum exhibit that is preserved as an evidence of the bright past for the visitors to admire it.
"The Movement paved the way to establishment and development of a new Armenia. People were guided with the interests of the state and the public then. Now, people have a consumer psychology, robbery and exploitation instincts irrespective of their positions," Manoucharyan said.
As for he domestic political processes in the country, the upcoming presidential election, Manoucharyan said that they bear no relation to the real interests of the public. A group of people tries to seize power and property from another group of people. There is fight for material values and wealth.
