ArmenPress today published the following statement of Serzh Sargsyan addressed to the MPs of his Republican Party of Armenia (RPA). ArmenPress says the text of the statement was released to them by the RPA press service
I must once again speak publicly, but this time addressing you. Though I had decided not to interfere in political processes following my resignation, now I consider that I have to do that.
I invite you to a meeting with me to explain you my reasons for resignation in a more detailed manner, to present my observations about the future of the party, new leadership of the party and importance of reforms and about fostering the development of the country by working in the Parliament that already has another role.
I invite you to speak about peace and stability, and the meeting will be organized by the head of the RPA faction.”
