“You are at forefront of the informational warfare: he will govern in the modern world who has the upper hand in this war. Much is at stake in the information war, therefore we should promote our goals through concerted action. The adversary spends a lot of money to win the informational war and we are obliged to get the truth through to outer world using joint effort,” the head of government said.

The Prime Minister stressed that as an important link, the Government is cooperating with numerous all-national institutions to solve pan-Armenian tasks.

Answering a question on the possibility of recognition of the Armenian Genocide by Turkey, the Premier said, “Armenia attaches great importance to the fact that a large group of liberally thinking intellectuals is up in Turkey who are trying to present the reality to the Turkish public. Turkey will have to acknowledge the fact of genocide within numerous international organizations, including academic and scientific circles, the time has come to get things right in this matter. The truth is needed not only by the Armenian, but also by the Turkish people.”
