ARF Is for Territorial Integrity of Georgia

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Vahan Hovhannisian–Vice Speaker of the Armenian Parliament and Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Bureau member–said that the ARF is not at all against the territorial integrity of Georgia. Responding to a question of the "Golos Armenii" (Voice of Armenia) newspaper–he also said the ARF is not responsible for the strained situation in Javakhk.

According to Hovhannisian–if the Georgian state is willing to give wide autonomous rights to its national minorities (Abkhazians–Ossetians)–the law-abiding Armenian citizens in Javakhk deserve the same rights.

"I think that Georgia–entering different European structures–must show a European approach to the issue of national minorities," Hovhannisian stated.
