Garegin II: Inciting Hatred and Hostility Are Unacceptable

Catholicos of All Armenians Garegin II released an address on the recent rallies in Armenia.

The statement reads:

"Dear faithful,

The domestic life of our country and people is accompanied by tense events in the recent days relating to the election of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia.

We express our concern on the situation, which disrupts the normal process of public life. Any [citizen] has its vision out of love towards the fatherland, for which it can express approaches and perceptions through peaceful means – by freely exercising civil rights.

However, this never implies retreat of love and common sense, violation of the rights of others, moreover endangering the lives of others. The sons of our people and Holy Church are among both the protesters and law enforcement. Inciting hatred and hostility and any kind of conflict and violence are unacceptable and inadmissible.

We call on the children of our people to maintain soberness and common sense, zeal of lawfulness and peace in patriotism.

Challenges which are faced by the fatherland are surmountable only when solidarity, mutual understanding, universal responsibility and unity are present. Our country today requires the display of this spirit.

We pray to God asking for the Lord’s wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you 2 Corinthians 13:11."
