ROBERT KOCHARIAN THINKS RADIO “LIBERTY” DISRUPTS THE BASIS OF STATEHOOD

On April 4 the RA President Robert Kocharian, being interviewed by journalists
after the ceremony of opening an Armenian bank building, refused answering the
question of the correspondent of the Armenian Service of Radio Free Europe/Radio
Liberty. The President explained his refusal, saying: “I have more respect for
those media of Armenia, who subsist with their own money, and are not funded
by other governments, while working in Armenia. (…) What you are doing is
directed at disrupting the basis of the RA statehood, and I cannot assess it
positively” (quoted from “Aravot” daily of April 5, 2008).
