YEREVAN (A.W.)—In a letter addressed to Barevolution leader Raffi Hovannisian, President Serge Sarkisian advised him to put an end to the hunger strike and discuss, “without shows,” the “very raw” text Hovannisian had proposed.
Hovannisian’s text “will help in starting constructive dialogue,” said Sarkisian. “I am happy that you have expressed readiness to take oversight responsibilities worthy of a strong opposition, and in that issue it seems that we hold similar views. I am confident that if we start working together, with the same goal in mind, we can achieve results.”
Sarkisian concluded, “I advise you to stop your hunger strike, rest, and recover for a couple of days, and we, paper and pen in hand, can start working—without shows—working seriously, accepting as basis the text—albeit very raw—that you yourself proposed.”
