Armenian authorities and opposition take dialogue seriously - former PM
Both ruling coalition and the opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) take political dialogue seriously, said former Armenian Premier Khosrov Harutunyan, News.am reported.
He recalled that the opposition presented a 85-page document containing their assessment of political situation, whereas the coalition is preparing a 131-page document in response.
According to him, prerequisite for dialogue was a correct position of President Serzh Sargsyan.
"Variety of assessments regarding president's position was voiced over recent three years. However, no tough assessment against the opposition was heard, not a single attempt to drive the opposition to a deadlock was made," he stressed.
While the dialogue continues, society begins to perceive the opposition in a new way. People point out opposition's readiness to dialogue, Harutunyan believes.
