YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–"A terrorist state has no right to have an embassy in Armenia," first secretary of the Yerevan City Committee of the Communist Party of Armenia Yuri Manoukian said during a protest demonstration Thursday in front of the US Embassy in Yerevan.
"Let the US first of all think about how to call to order its own perverted citizens and its president and take its hands off nations with deep-rooted traditions–national conscience and dignity," he said.
Declaring that American soldiers were cowards–Yuri Manoukian demanded that the US ambassador should come out–in order for the demonstrators to tell him about their resentment and demand that he leave Armenia.
Manoukian said–"under the current circumstances the Armenian people can’t remain indifferent and not express their solidarity with the Serbs and Russia’s with whom Armenia’s have centuries-old historical friendships."
In a Noyan Tapan interview–Manoukian said that the Communist Party was enlisting volunteers–including those not affiliated with their party–who are willing to go to Yugoslavia and fight alongside the Serbs.
