If anybody thinks that the authorities and the Republican Party should be given provocations and we will respond to their actions, they should understand that we have so much political maturity, seriousness that we will never choose an adventurous way and respond in the similar manner. We have assumed responsibility before our citizens for governing the country and we are ready to take that burden and continue. If some want strong shakes, we need strong, democratic, national and united Armenia,” - the RPA spokesman said.
