YEREVAN (Combined Sources)–In a joint statement issued on Tuesday–the governing coalition called on the opposition once more to engage in real dialogue.
The statement reads that though the opposition–through its statemen’s made jointly with other parliamentary forces–emphasizes the need to create a new political atmosphere in the country–it has–nevertheless–failed to take the appropriate steps in this direction.
"Adopting a policy of holding protest rallies instead of engaging in a dialogue–they effectively do not adhere to the Council of Europe’s calls to settle issues by political means without preconditions," the statement continues.
Referring to a solution to the problem–the coalition states the situation can not change simply with the readiness of authorities–but also requires the opposition to change its stance–adding that it "believes the possibility for a further dialogue still exists–and expects that the opposition–with a responsible stance–participate in the process of settling the current problems jointly."
In concluding–the coalition confirms its resoluteness "to settle the problems and issues that the people are concerned with through implementation of the Council of Europe’s recommendations and the country’s commitmen’s before the Council."
