Remember that infamous statement of ‘no gays in Iran’ by Iranian president Ahmadinejad which made him a laughing stock worldwide. Very different level here, but truly THE Quote of The Day. (Quote of The Year, or even century(ies)?..)
Here we go:
“It’s impossible, there are no gays in Armenia.”
И вот мне из [ереванского агентства новостей] Panarmenian коллеги написали: "Это невозможно, в Армении геев нет".
From Panarmenian.net Armenian news agency to Azeri writer Alekper Aliyev, the author of Artush and Zaur (gay love story between Armenian and Azerbaijani)

I wonder who were the authors of this nonsense from Panarmenian.net?
