YEREVAN, APRIL 19, ARMENPRESS. The Supreme Council of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (in coalition with Republican Party of Armenia) has issued a statement over the recent days’ protests in the country. ARMENPRESS reports the statement notes that the rallies taking place in the country for several days show that there is a public demand in the country for structural changes and deep reforms.

We are all facing the imperative to make this process effective and finding solutions for it. The culmination of this situation should be beneficial for both the citizens of Armenia and the state”, reads the statement.
