Republican Party of Armenia to vote for Armenia-Turkey protocols

13 January 2010 [10:16] - TODAY.AZ
The Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) played a key role in drafting the Armenian-Turkish protocols, and the RPA parliamentary faction will certainly vote for the document," Chairman of the RPA parliamentary faction Galust Sahakyan said.

He pointed out that the RPA has from the very outset been for ratification within a reasonable timeframe.

“As to the other parliamentary forces, I think each of them will vote in conformity with their beliefs,” Sahakyan said.

Secretary of the faction Eduard Sharmazanov said that he, as well as the ruling party, has been supportive of President Serzh Sargsyan’s policy of initiatives over the last year and a half.

"The RPA remains committed to its stance."

“RPA is not a party changing its views every week. At the RPA Council’s sitting held before the protocols were signed, we stated our opinion and have not changed it,” Sharmazanov said.

Armenian Constitutional Court ruled the Armenian-Turkish protocols constitutional on Jan. 12.
