The government delegation negotiating with the opposition Armenian National Congress (ANC) was never in favor of ending or suspending the talks, and the authorities are always ready to continue them, ruling coalition's Prosperous Armenia Party MP and government delegation member Vardan Bostanjyan told NEWS.am.
Reflecting on ANC's leader and Armenia's First President Levon Ter-Petrosyan's demands which he brought forward during ANC's last rally, Bostanjyan said: "Demands. That word should not be said. What does making demands mean from the perspective of political ethics? Demands are more difficult for the authorities to perceive, and, to put it more mildly, they are not accepted at all."
According to Vardan Bostanjyan, it is altogether another issue whether there are problems which our country faces and which cause concern for the authorities and the opposition alike. "In this case, the discourse was pursuing one objective according to which we would have been able to resolve all complicated problems. Now it is suspended, and in this respect I believe we are at a standby. Either it will continue, or, if ANC finds it unsuitable, no," Bostanjyan noted, but adding that the right thing is to continue the dialogue.
