Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.
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.
