Armenia Is Obliged to Support Armenia’s in Javakhk

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–"If Chechen guerrillas move from Pankisi gorge to Javakhk and threaten the lives of Armenia’s and the stability of Javakhk–the Republic of Armenian can not remain indifferent and is obliged to show support," said National Assembly member Vahan Hovhannisian at an October 7 meeting with Yerevan State University students. Responding to student questions–Hovhannisian said that the political situation in Georgia is the most unstable in the region–adding that immediate regulation of the situation would contribute to solving many problems–which would include the definitive achievement of security for the Armenian population of Javakhk.

In response to the question–"Is the Turkish-Armenian Reconciliation Commission recognized by the state?" Hovhannisian noted–"Anti-Armenian sentimen’s by Turkey have gained momentum subsequent to the work of this ‘commission,’ which is a civic [track two] initiative and has been rejected by the people.
