Serj Tankian: I welcome the reforms that are being implemented in  Armenia today

ArmInfo.I welcome the reforms that are being implemented in Armenia today. This was stated by the leader of the rock band System of a Down Serj Tankian at a press  conference in Yerevan on October 9.

''We see that there is economic growth in the country. I have the  impression that all indicators are improving, and this is good news.  For a long time there were no such processes in Armenia. Not all  countries of the world are able to reach such changes as Armenia, and  I am glad that you took control of your destiny and were able to  achieve changes'', the musician noted.

According to Tankian, he is not alone in his opinion. ''When I  communicate with representatives of the Armenian Diaspora, I see that  many of them are still encouraged. Many people consider returning to  Armenia; some have already brought this intention into life. I am  sure that changes in the republic to some extent affected the  performance of the tourism sector. I am full of hope regarding the  future of Armenia'', Tankian emphasized.

The rocker also admitted that he was seriously considering the  possibility of acquiring housing in the republic. ''Last year, when I  arrived in Armenia with my wife, I was interested in this issue, but  then we could not find anything concrete. Now I'm still looking'', he  said.

To recall, Serj Tankian repeatedly criticized the previous  authorities of Armenia, addressing the third President of Armenia  Serzh Sargsyan through open letters. They, in particular, raised  social and economic problems in Armenia.

The musician actively supported the "velvet revolution" of 2018, and  arrived in Yerevan on the eve of the parliamentary vote regarding the  candidacy of Nikol Pashinyan for the post of prime minister. In  September of this year, he presented at the Toronto Film Festival a  documentary directed by Garin Hovhannisyan about the velvet  revolution in Armenia, "I'm Not Alone". Tankian acted as executive  producer and author of the soundtrack for this movie.
