Nikol Pashinyan stated : “Dear colleagues, I am glad to see you. Honorable President of the Republic of Armenia, Honorable President of the Artsakh Republic, Honorable Presidents of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh, Distinguished Members of the Security Councils of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh, To begin with, I would like to welcome the second joint sitting of the Security Councils of Armenia and Artsakh. The first similar meeting was held in Stepanakert on March 12, 2019, and now we are holding a joint session in Yerevan. A very important and useful tradition is being established, meant to harmonize our positions and actions on issues high on the joint agenda. We are thereby coordinating the ongoing cooperation and dialogue between the authorities of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh in an effort to ensure comprehensive security for the Armenian people in the region. During the joint session of March 12, I highlighted two issues essential in terms of recording progress in the peaceful resolution of the Artsakh conflict. The first is to secure Artsakh’s involvement as the key party to the conflict. The perception of the need to achieve that involvement has been strengthened over the past months owing to the steps taken by the authorities of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh. What matters here is that these steps reflect the objective reality created in our region following the Velvet Revolution in Armenia. What are the characteristics of this objective reality? First, the changes in Armenia have strengthened Artsakh’s positions and emphasized the equitable nature of the relations between the authorities of Armenia and Artsakh. Second, the culture of decision-making has changed and the role reserved to the people and society in influencing those decisions has changed not only in Armenia but also in Artsakh. It is obvious that no significant progress can be achieved in the Artsakh issue without the presence and expression of popular confidence. And from this perspective, the opinion of people living in the conflict zone is more than essential, as they will be the immediate bearers of the benefits and risks of any settlement. This fact highlights the role of the people of Artsakh and their elected authorities in the peace process. In this respect, the upcoming elections in Artsakh are becoming ever more important. All basic documents for the settlement of the conflict either include a reference to the participation of the elected authorities of Artsakh or have been approved by representatives of the elected authorities of Artsakh. I would like to stress that we are facing a crucial situation here and note that from the very outset, we highlighted the need for Artsakh’s elected representatives to participate in the negotiation process, and it is strange to hear negative assessments about the upcoming elections in Artsakh. And our record is that the elections in Artsakh are actually held on the basis of an international mandate, and therefore any criticism thereof may undermine the peace process, because the people of Artsakh cannot be represented in the negotiations otherwise than through their authorized representatives nominated by means of polls. I am more than confident that strong with the people’s vote, the newly elected authorities of Artsakh shall have a constructive involvement in the peace process. Armenia will continue to act as the guarantor of Artsakh’s comprehensive security. This role of the Republic of Armenia that I detailed during the rally held in Stepanakert Square on August 5 this year implies close cooperation with the new authorities of Artsakh. From this point of view, I appreciate our deep understanding with the incumbent authorities of Artsakh and express my gratitude to President Bako Sahakyan for supporting the democratic process in Artsakh. Dear Colleagues, The results of the peace process have been modest this year, but two important arrangements have been made to build an environment conducive to peace and prepare the populations for peace. The arrangements have had two practical implications: in spite of repeated ceasefire violations, we managed to avoid military escalation and keep the situation in check for all parties, as a whole. However, ceasefire violations result in human casualties, endanger the civilian population in the conflict zone and undermine the peace process. For instance, Azerbaijan shelled Armenia’s north-eastern border roads and settlements last week following the December 6 statement issued by the Minsk Group Co-Chairs at the OSCE Ministerial Conference in Bratislava, and this incident can undermine the peace process. In the current situation, cease-fire agreements need to be implemented consistently, including through enhanced capacity of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office. Equally important are the peace-building programs in the framework of which Armenia and Azerbaijan exchanged journalists’ visits. Unlike other people-to-people contacts, this exchange was carried out not through the outline of this or that third party, but through state bodies of all parties to the conflict who were able to coordinate and carry out a common task through the office of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office. This fact is to be welcomed, since I am convinced that no force can reconcile us if citizens cannot communicate directly with each other. It is important for Azerbaijani journalists to visit Armenia and Artsakh, and for journalists from Armenia and Artsakh to be in Azerbaijan and eventually be able to work with each other. On various occasions this year I have indicated that sustainable peace and reconciliation cannot be achieved without the active involvement and agreement of the people of Armenia, the people of Artsakh and the people of Azerbaijan. Let us hope that this program will serve as a starting point for preparing the respective populations for peace. Then, during our first joint meeting, I was asked about the three principles and 6 elements of the Madrid Principles put forward by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs as a basis for clarifying the negotiation process. This year we have had two different interpretations of this question by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs and Azerbaijan. The issue of Artsakh’s status is of primary importance for us. Do the proposed principles and elements allow Artsakh to preserve and develop its status outside of Azerbaijan’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, or are these principles and elements meant to limit the right of the people of Artsakh to self-determination, as insisted by Azerbaijan? As I have already mentioned, the Minsk Group Co-Chairs’ comment on this issue differs substantially from that of Azerbaijan, which of course gives grounds for optimism regarding the proposed negotiation basis. Nevertheless, Armenia and Artsakh must eventually come to an agreement with Azerbaijan, so it is necessary to move from ambiguity to a common understanding. During the year we clarified our positions, most recently in Bratislava on December 5. Should Azerbaijan try to question the exercise of the right of self-determination or non-use of force, then the third principle will becomes relative, too, and nothing will change in the situation we have today. The security of the united Armenian nation of Armenia and Artsakh requires a predictable environment and scenario for conflict resolution. The approach that the conflict should be settled in a way to comply with the demands and needs of only one side leads to nowhere. That is why the conflict has not been resolved over the past 25 years despite the efforts exerted by the Armenian side and the Co-Chairs. I believe that any substantive discussion should first of all seek to set out mutually agreed principles for conflict resolution not only in the form, but also in the content. I should also point out that representing the return to the status quo of 1986-87, or any modification to it as an attempt to settle the conflict is inappropriate and does not stem from the essence and content of the conflict. Dear Colleagues, Our government has been abiding by a constructive approach from the outset, and we are pleased to note that this is recorded by our international partners. We have proposed a very simple, logical and understandable principle at the conceptual level of the settlement of the Artsakh issue. Any settlement should be acceptable to the population of Artsakh, the people of Armenia and the people of Azerbaijan. Declaring this principle, I hoped that the President of Azerbaijan would make a similar statement, which might open up great opportunities for achieving a breakthrough in the negotiation process. Unfortunately, we have not yet heard such a statement on the part of the Azeri leader, and I think that the international structures and our partners involved in the settlement process should set the task of encouraging the President of Azerbaijan to make a statement to that effect and agree with an understandable and logical formula, since the perception that the settlement should satisfy one of the parties and ignore the interests of the others will block the negotiation process. Moreover, I think that everyone has understood that the Karabakh conflict has no military solution. Such attempts will have disastrous consequences for Azerbaijan, especially since, as I have said several times, we have acquired an unprecedented quantity of state-of-the-art weaponry and ammunition over the past one and a half years; we have implemented drastic reforms in the Armed Forces to enhance our troops’ fighting capacity and combat readiness. I would like to reiterate that these steps do not imply a drive for war, but for peace. I hereby declare that any attempt to talk the hard way to Armenia, Artsakh and the Armenian people is pointless. And in this respect, not only does Armenia play the role of Artsakh’s security guarantor, but it also has to play a greater role as the guarantor of peace in the region. Thank you” External link

Nikol Pashinyan said : “Unfortunately, we are located in a region where the situation is too volatile; where the situation keeps aggravating day after day. We will have long-term security challenges, ranging from the threat of terrorism to border security, and so on. But I want to emphasize that according to the latest data, the Republic of Armenia is on the list of safest countries in the world. Fancy what, a country in a state of conflict, a country with two closed borders out of four suddenly becomes one of the safest countries in the world. This fact is unfortunately often overlooked. And I deem it important to draw your attention to the aforementioned important fact. That is why I wish to extend a special vote of thanks to the National Security Service and other security bodies of our country: the Armed Forces, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Ministry of Defense, the Police and the law enforcement system, in general. Nevertheless, this does not mean that I think that the NSS or any other body is working perfectly. No one can feel so, and no one can think that there is a body in Armenia - public or private, which works perfectly. And in general, no country has an ideal working body. And it is very important to note that we consider the improvement of state institutions as the most important priority, and there is no doubt that we will move consistently in that direction,” External link

armenpress Friday, December 20, 2019 6:47:00 PM EAT

Nikol Pashinyan noted : “We all know very well what has happened, but I want to say something that I think is very important: of course, at different times, the law enforcement system, including the NSS, works in different conditions, in different environments. However, I want to say that even at that time, the NSS (taking into account also the understandable nuances of its activities) never crossed, at least as much as my own experience is concerned, the red lines that could exist at all in public relations. For this reason, today, as the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, I trust the National Security Service of the Republic of Armenia, because I understand that the NSS should not be an entity to fit the government in office. The NSS should be a national security service in the literal sense of the word, under any government, without exception. And this is the number one mission for this structure. And I want to say that all the more so, being the prime minister and the head of government, who is 100 percent sure that all his activities, with all the nuances, without exception meet the interests of the national security of the Republic of Armenia, national interests, state interests, such a prime minister, such a government cannot have a bit of mistrust in the NSS. And I think that our biggest task is to implement balanced reforms in the NSS in the coming years to make its work more efficient. And, in particular, yes, I agree with the remarks that over time the National Security Service will make less effort in the fight against corruption in order to focus on counterintelligence issues and on combating terrorism; it should focus on maintaining the constitutional order and curbing violence. Unfortunately, a very large part of our society does not realize the entire coverage of security activities. And I want to highlight a few other areas that remain out of the public eye. I mean intelligence, counter-intelligence, border troops, the fight against terrorism, which is usually out of sight, perhaps for objective and subjective reasons. Dear attendees, It is crucial for us to provide the NSS with proper working conditions. I mean that the NSS officers should have specific mechanisms and guarantees of social and psychological protection appropriate to their service. This is one of the most important nuances in the context of which we represent the further development of this institution. Dear Acting National Security Service Director, National Security Service officers, Government members and officials, Reiterating my congratulations on the upcoming National Security Service Officer’s Day, I wish we could celebrate this day with a higher spirit and more confidence every other year in a way that security issues could be tackled at a higher level in our country so that no one might pose a serious threat to the security of the Republic of Armenia, the Republic of Artsakh, and the Armenian people. Our security is in strong hands, our security is in safe hands, and this security and stability should be preserved for the benefit of the people of Armenia, the people of Artsakh and the Armenian people as a whole, as well as our statehoods,” External link

Contrary to several political speculations, an unprecedented volume of armament has been acquired at this period.

Nikol Pashinyan stated : “Honorable Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia, Esteemed National Assembly Speaker, Dear guests, judicial system representatives, public officials, Dear journalists, I congratulate all of us on the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the institution of the Defender of Human Rights, since the protection of human rights is one of the most important goals that a democratic government, a democratic society and a democratic country can have in the modern world. Fifteen years ago, when the Ombudsman’s institution was being established in our country, there were some pessimistic views about its influence on the status of human rights in Armenia. But we can state now that the institution is fully constituted in Armenia with its invaluable contribution to the protection of human rights. It should be noted that the relations between the Ombudsman, on the one hand, and the Government and the authorities, on the other hand, were not so seamless over the past 15 years. Suffice it to note that the first three ombudsmen did not hold their posts until the end of their term and resigned, which was publicly perceived as a manifestation of deep disagreements between the ombudsman and the authorities. However, we are convinced or, at least, hope that as a result of the non-violent velvet popular revolution of 2018, new conditions and a new atmosphere for the activities of the Defender of Human Rights were created in Armenia, as well as new conditions and a new atmosphere for the protection of human rights, in general, because the revolution was made by people, the proud citizens of the Republic of Armenia, and therefore the revolution ought to provide and actually provided the necessary atmosphere, in which the human being is de facto the highest value, and the protection of human rights is a priority for the government and the authorities. This, of course, does not mean that the protection of human rights in the Republic of Armenia is in perfect condition today. This means that the protection of human rights is at least the same priority for the Government of the Republic of Armenia as for the defender of human rights. And in this regard, I myself, the Government and the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia consider that the Human Rights Defender has a crucial mission to complete in the Republic of Armenia, because we consider the Ombudsman’s institution to be one of our most important allies all the way through this process. In general, our activities after the revolution are primarily aimed at the protecting human rights based on the simple understanding that everyone is equal before the law in the Republic of Armenia and that inequality leads to corruption. The Government should primarily enhance the status of human rights in fighting against corruption; the Government should guarantee citizens’ right to well-being while combating monopolies. Today we can state that as assisted by the Armenian Human Rights Defender, we have set a hectic agenda for the protection of human rights in our country. We can also state that important institutional issues have been resolved that went unaddressed for many years. First of all, in December 2018, we held extraordinary parliamentary elections, and they were the first in the history of Armenia’s parliamentary elections, the results of which were not contested in the Constitutional Court, and the results of which were not questioned neither by the international community nor by the Armenian public. On the contrary, they were highly appreciated by all local and international observers as free, competitive and democratic. And it is very important to see the problems that we are facing today. The first challenge stems from the understanding that Armenia is undoubtedly a democratic country, but our democracy, let me say, has had an emotional bias following the non-violent velvet popular revolution of 2018. Now we must make democracy institutionally stronger in our country so that its future could in no way depend on the taste, mood or discretion of any leader, any personality, or any political party. We are firmly determined to move forward in this direction. Another serious challenge is the establishment of an independent judiciary. We note that together with the legislative and executive authorities of the Republic of Armenia, the judiciary has contributed to massive violations of human rights, and today the existence of a truly independent judicial system is a priority for us. I wish to state the intent and the will of our government. We are not at all interested in getting the judicial system under control. In general, we are fundamentally opposed to the fact that the judicial system used to be under someone’s control. But when the Government of the Republic of Armenia demonstrated its will, both practical and political, to abandon the practice of controlling the judicial system, we realized that it opened up a niche for those who had previously controlled the judiciary as they saw in it an opportunity for themselves to continue exercising control over the judicial system in a bid to reverse the democratic changes in Armenia. I wish to state unequivocally that the judicial system in Armenia must undergo fundamental changes so that we could have a truly independent judiciary as one of the key institutions of democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Armenia. Today we have big problems with the quality of the legal system, as a whole. The problems are objective, because these systems have worked for many years in such an environment, in conditions that in their depth were contrary to the protection of human rights. Therefore, we also need a new law enforcement system under the new conditions. Let me say that in the context of the ongoing reforms, the Human Rights Defender’s institution is of paramount importance to us, since we consider the Ombudsman a catalyst for evaluating our reforms, which can counterbalance even the most democratic and kindest efforts initiated by our government. I am convinced that the Ombudsman’s institution, the Human Rights Defender can play such a role, and the Government of the Republic of Armenia, the ruling political majority will do everything possible to provide the conditions conducive to the Ombudsman’s smooth operations as one of the most important institutions of democracy, the rule of law, and the protection of human rights . Reiterating my congratulations, I wish to express conviction that the situation with the protection of human rights in Armenia will improve day by day, every week, every month and every year through close cooperation instead of confrontation between the Government of the Republic of Armenia and the Ombudsman’s institution” External link

This was an unlawful and unconstitutional act. The Constitution lays down the principle of separation of powers, and by blocking courts, Pashinyan proved once again that his policy has nothing to do with democracy. The head of government of any legal state can’t interfere in the activities of the legislature and the judiciary, much less block courts. Later, we witnessed attacks on the Constitutional Court and listened to the famous speech by Vahe Grigoryan, who was elected judge of the Constitutional Court by the National Assembly.

Nikol Pashinyan stated : “Dear colleagues, I am glad to see you. Honorable President of the Republic of Armenia, Honorable President of the Artsakh Republic, Honorable Presidents of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh, Distinguished Members of the Security Councils of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh, To begin with, I would like to welcome the second joint sitting of the Security Councils of Armenia and Artsakh. The first similar meeting was held in Stepanakert on March 12, 2019, and now we are holding a joint session in Yerevan. A very important and useful tradition is being established, meant to harmonize our positions and actions on issues high on the joint agenda. We are thereby coordinating the ongoing cooperation and dialogue between the authorities of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh in an effort to ensure comprehensive security for the Armenian people in the region. During the joint session of March 12, I highlighted two issues essential in terms of recording progress in the peaceful resolution of the Artsakh conflict. The first is to secure Artsakh’s involvement as the key party to the conflict. The perception of the need to achieve that involvement has been strengthened over the past months owing to the steps taken by the authorities of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh. What matters here is that these steps reflect the objective reality created in our region following the Velvet Revolution in Armenia. What are the characteristics of this objective reality? First, the changes in Armenia have strengthened Artsakh’s positions and emphasized the equitable nature of the relations between the authorities of Armenia and Artsakh. Second, the culture of decision-making has changed and the role reserved to the people and society in influencing those decisions has changed not only in Armenia but also in Artsakh. It is obvious that no significant progress can be achieved in the Artsakh issue without the presence and expression of popular confidence. And from this perspective, the opinion of people living in the conflict zone is more than essential, as they will be the immediate bearers of the benefits and risks of any settlement. This fact highlights the role of the people of Artsakh and their elected authorities in the peace process. In this respect, the upcoming elections in Artsakh are becoming ever more important. All basic documents for the settlement of the conflict either include a reference to the participation of the elected authorities of Artsakh or have been approved by representatives of the elected authorities of Artsakh. I would like to stress that we are facing a crucial situation here and note that from the very outset, we highlighted the need for Artsakh’s elected representatives to participate in the negotiation process, and it is strange to hear negative assessments about the upcoming elections in Artsakh. And our record is that the elections in Artsakh are actually held on the basis of an international mandate, and therefore any criticism thereof may undermine the peace process, because the people of Artsakh cannot be represented in the negotiations otherwise than through their authorized representatives nominated by means of polls. I am more than confident that strong with the people’s vote, the newly elected authorities of Artsakh shall have a constructive involvement in the peace process. Armenia will continue to act as the guarantor of Artsakh’s comprehensive security. This role of the Republic of Armenia that I detailed during the rally held in Stepanakert Square on August 5 this year implies close cooperation with the new authorities of Artsakh. From this point of view, I appreciate our deep understanding with the incumbent authorities of Artsakh and express my gratitude to President Bako Sahakyan for supporting the democratic process in Artsakh. Dear Colleagues, The results of the peace process have been modest this year, but two important arrangements have been made to build an environment conducive to peace and prepare the populations for peace. The arrangements have had two practical implications: in spite of repeated ceasefire violations, we managed to avoid military escalation and keep the situation in check for all parties, as a whole. However, ceasefire violations result in human casualties, endanger the civilian population in the conflict zone and undermine the peace process. For instance, Azerbaijan shelled Armenia’s north-eastern border roads and settlements last week following the December 6 statement issued by the Minsk Group Co-Chairs at the OSCE Ministerial Conference in Bratislava, and this incident can undermine the peace process. In the current situation, cease-fire agreements need to be implemented consistently, including through enhanced capacity of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office. Equally important are the peace-building programs in the framework of which Armenia and Azerbaijan exchanged journalists’ visits. Unlike other people-to-people contacts, this exchange was carried out not through the outline of this or that third party, but through state bodies of all parties to the conflict who were able to coordinate and carry out a common task through the office of the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office. This fact is to be welcomed, since I am convinced that no force can reconcile us if citizens cannot communicate directly with each other. It is important for Azerbaijani journalists to visit Armenia and Artsakh, and for journalists from Armenia and Artsakh to be in Azerbaijan and eventually be able to work with each other. On various occasions this year I have indicated that sustainable peace and reconciliation cannot be achieved without the active involvement and agreement of the people of Armenia, the people of Artsakh and the people of Azerbaijan. Let us hope that this program will serve as a starting point for preparing the respective populations for peace. Then, during our first joint meeting, I was asked about the three principles and 6 elements of the Madrid Principles put forward by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs as a basis for clarifying the negotiation process. This year we have had two different interpretations of this question by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs and Azerbaijan. The issue of Artsakh’s status is of primary importance for us. Do the proposed principles and elements allow Artsakh to preserve and develop its status outside of Azerbaijan’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, or are these principles and elements meant to limit the right of the people of Artsakh to self-determination, as insisted by Azerbaijan? As I have already mentioned, the Minsk Group Co-Chairs’ comment on this issue differs substantially from that of Azerbaijan, which of course gives grounds for optimism regarding the proposed negotiation basis. Nevertheless, Armenia and Artsakh must eventually come to an agreement with Azerbaijan, so it is necessary to move from ambiguity to a common understanding. During the year we clarified our positions, most recently in Bratislava on December 5. Should Azerbaijan try to question the exercise of the right of self-determination or non-use of force, then the third principle will becomes relative, too, and nothing will change in the situation we have today. The security of the united Armenian nation of Armenia and Artsakh requires a predictable environment and scenario for conflict resolution. The approach that the conflict should be settled in a way to comply with the demands and needs of only one side leads to nowhere. That is why the conflict has not been resolved over the past 25 years despite the efforts exerted by the Armenian side and the Co-Chairs. I believe that any substantive discussion should first of all seek to set out mutually agreed principles for conflict resolution not only in the form, but also in the content. I should also point out that representing the return to the status quo of 1986-87, or any modification to it as an attempt to settle the conflict is inappropriate and does not stem from the essence and content of the conflict. Dear Colleagues, Our government has been abiding by a constructive approach from the outset, and we are pleased to note that this is recorded by our international partners. We have proposed a very simple, logical and understandable principle at the conceptual level of the settlement of the Artsakh issue. Any settlement should be acceptable to the population of Artsakh, the people of Armenia and the people of Azerbaijan. Declaring this principle, I hoped that the President of Azerbaijan would make a similar statement, which might open up great opportunities for achieving a breakthrough in the negotiation process. Unfortunately, we have not yet heard such a statement on the part of the Azeri leader, and I think that the international structures and our partners involved in the settlement process should set the task of encouraging the President of Azerbaijan to make a statement to that effect and agree with an understandable and logical formula, since the perception that the settlement should satisfy one of the parties and ignore the interests of the others will block the negotiation process. Moreover, I think that everyone has understood that the Karabakh conflict has no military solution. Such attempts will have disastrous consequences for Azerbaijan, especially since, as I have said several times, we have acquired an unprecedented quantity of state-of-the-art weaponry and ammunition over the past one and a half years; we have implemented drastic reforms in the Armed Forces to enhance our troops’ fighting capacity and combat readiness. I would like to reiterate that these steps do not imply a drive for war, but for peace. I hereby declare that any attempt to talk the hard way to Armenia, Artsakh and the Armenian people is pointless. And in this respect, not only does Armenia play the role of Artsakh’s security guarantor, but it also has to play a greater role as the guarantor of peace in the region. Thank you” External link

Nikol Pashinyan said : “Unfortunately, we are located in a region where the situation is too volatile; where the situation keeps aggravating day after day. We will have long-term security challenges, ranging from the threat of terrorism to border security, and so on. But I want to emphasize that according to the latest data, the Republic of Armenia is on the list of safest countries in the world. Fancy what, a country in a state of conflict, a country with two closed borders out of four suddenly becomes one of the safest countries in the world. This fact is unfortunately often overlooked. And I deem it important to draw your attention to the aforementioned important fact. That is why I wish to extend a special vote of thanks to the National Security Service and other security bodies of our country: the Armed Forces, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Ministry of Defense, the Police and the law enforcement system, in general. Nevertheless, this does not mean that I think that the NSS or any other body is working perfectly. No one can feel so, and no one can think that there is a body in Armenia - public or private, which works perfectly. And in general, no country has an ideal working body. And it is very important to note that we consider the improvement of state institutions as the most important priority, and there is no doubt that we will move consistently in that direction,” External link

armenpress Friday, December 20, 2019 6:47:00 PM EAT

Nikol Pashinyan noted : “We all know very well what has happened, but I want to say something that I think is very important: of course, at different times, the law enforcement system, including the NSS, works in different conditions, in different environments. However, I want to say that even at that time, the NSS (taking into account also the understandable nuances of its activities) never crossed, at least as much as my own experience is concerned, the red lines that could exist at all in public relations. For this reason, today, as the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, I trust the National Security Service of the Republic of Armenia, because I understand that the NSS should not be an entity to fit the government in office. The NSS should be a national security service in the literal sense of the word, under any government, without exception. And this is the number one mission for this structure. And I want to say that all the more so, being the prime minister and the head of government, who is 100 percent sure that all his activities, with all the nuances, without exception meet the interests of the national security of the Republic of Armenia, national interests, state interests, such a prime minister, such a government cannot have a bit of mistrust in the NSS. And I think that our biggest task is to implement balanced reforms in the NSS in the coming years to make its work more efficient. And, in particular, yes, I agree with the remarks that over time the National Security Service will make less effort in the fight against corruption in order to focus on counterintelligence issues and on combating terrorism; it should focus on maintaining the constitutional order and curbing violence. Unfortunately, a very large part of our society does not realize the entire coverage of security activities. And I want to highlight a few other areas that remain out of the public eye. I mean intelligence, counter-intelligence, border troops, the fight against terrorism, which is usually out of sight, perhaps for objective and subjective reasons. Dear attendees, It is crucial for us to provide the NSS with proper working conditions. I mean that the NSS officers should have specific mechanisms and guarantees of social and psychological protection appropriate to their service. This is one of the most important nuances in the context of which we represent the further development of this institution. Dear Acting National Security Service Director, National Security Service officers, Government members and officials, Reiterating my congratulations on the upcoming National Security Service Officer’s Day, I wish we could celebrate this day with a higher spirit and more confidence every other year in a way that security issues could be tackled at a higher level in our country so that no one might pose a serious threat to the security of the Republic of Armenia, the Republic of Artsakh, and the Armenian people. Our security is in strong hands, our security is in safe hands, and this security and stability should be preserved for the benefit of the people of Armenia, the people of Artsakh and the Armenian people as a whole, as well as our statehoods,” External link

Nikol Pashinyan stated : “Honorable Human Rights Defender of the Republic of Armenia, Esteemed National Assembly Speaker, Dear guests, judicial system representatives, public officials, Dear journalists, I congratulate all of us on the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the institution of the Defender of Human Rights, since the protection of human rights is one of the most important goals that a democratic government, a democratic society and a democratic country can have in the modern world. Fifteen years ago, when the Ombudsman’s institution was being established in our country, there were some pessimistic views about its influence on the status of human rights in Armenia. But we can state now that the institution is fully constituted in Armenia with its invaluable contribution to the protection of human rights. It should be noted that the relations between the Ombudsman, on the one hand, and the Government and the authorities, on the other hand, were not so seamless over the past 15 years. Suffice it to note that the first three ombudsmen did not hold their posts until the end of their term and resigned, which was publicly perceived as a manifestation of deep disagreements between the ombudsman and the authorities. However, we are convinced or, at least, hope that as a result of the non-violent velvet popular revolution of 2018, new conditions and a new atmosphere for the activities of the Defender of Human Rights were created in Armenia, as well as new conditions and a new atmosphere for the protection of human rights, in general, because the revolution was made by people, the proud citizens of the Republic of Armenia, and therefore the revolution ought to provide and actually provided the necessary atmosphere, in which the human being is de facto the highest value, and the protection of human rights is a priority for the government and the authorities. This, of course, does not mean that the protection of human rights in the Republic of Armenia is in perfect condition today. This means that the protection of human rights is at least the same priority for the Government of the Republic of Armenia as for the defender of human rights. And in this regard, I myself, the Government and the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia consider that the Human Rights Defender has a crucial mission to complete in the Republic of Armenia, because we consider the Ombudsman’s institution to be one of our most important allies all the way through this process. In general, our activities after the revolution are primarily aimed at the protecting human rights based on the simple understanding that everyone is equal before the law in the Republic of Armenia and that inequality leads to corruption. The Government should primarily enhance the status of human rights in fighting against corruption; the Government should guarantee citizens’ right to well-being while combating monopolies. Today we can state that as assisted by the Armenian Human Rights Defender, we have set a hectic agenda for the protection of human rights in our country. We can also state that important institutional issues have been resolved that went unaddressed for many years. First of all, in December 2018, we held extraordinary parliamentary elections, and they were the first in the history of Armenia’s parliamentary elections, the results of which were not contested in the Constitutional Court, and the results of which were not questioned neither by the international community nor by the Armenian public. On the contrary, they were highly appreciated by all local and international observers as free, competitive and democratic. And it is very important to see the problems that we are facing today. The first challenge stems from the understanding that Armenia is undoubtedly a democratic country, but our democracy, let me say, has had an emotional bias following the non-violent velvet popular revolution of 2018. Now we must make democracy institutionally stronger in our country so that its future could in no way depend on the taste, mood or discretion of any leader, any personality, or any political party. We are firmly determined to move forward in this direction. Another serious challenge is the establishment of an independent judiciary. We note that together with the legislative and executive authorities of the Republic of Armenia, the judiciary has contributed to massive violations of human rights, and today the existence of a truly independent judicial system is a priority for us. I wish to state the intent and the will of our government. We are not at all interested in getting the judicial system under control. In general, we are fundamentally opposed to the fact that the judicial system used to be under someone’s control. But when the Government of the Republic of Armenia demonstrated its will, both practical and political, to abandon the practice of controlling the judicial system, we realized that it opened up a niche for those who had previously controlled the judiciary as they saw in it an opportunity for themselves to continue exercising control over the judicial system in a bid to reverse the democratic changes in Armenia. I wish to state unequivocally that the judicial system in Armenia must undergo fundamental changes so that we could have a truly independent judiciary as one of the key institutions of democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Armenia. Today we have big problems with the quality of the legal system, as a whole. The problems are objective, because these systems have worked for many years in such an environment, in conditions that in their depth were contrary to the protection of human rights. Therefore, we also need a new law enforcement system under the new conditions. Let me say that in the context of the ongoing reforms, the Human Rights Defender’s institution is of paramount importance to us, since we consider the Ombudsman a catalyst for evaluating our reforms, which can counterbalance even the most democratic and kindest efforts initiated by our government. I am convinced that the Ombudsman’s institution, the Human Rights Defender can play such a role, and the Government of the Republic of Armenia, the ruling political majority will do everything possible to provide the conditions conducive to the Ombudsman’s smooth operations as one of the most important institutions of democracy, the rule of law, and the protection of human rights . Reiterating my congratulations, I wish to express conviction that the situation with the protection of human rights in Armenia will improve day by day, every week, every month and every year through close cooperation instead of confrontation between the Government of the Republic of Armenia and the Ombudsman’s institution” External link

The Constitution lays down the principle of separation of powers, and by blocking courts, Pashinyan proved once again that his policy has nothing to do with democracy. The head of government of any legal state can’t interfere in the activities of the legislature and the judiciary, much less block courts. Later, we witnessed attacks on the Constitutional Court and listened to the famous speech by Vahe Grigoryan, who was elected judge of the Constitutional Court by the National Assembly.
