10:01:23 Soundbite by José Manuel Barroso (in ENGLISH): But democracy goes well beyond election day. It is built every day in a number of different areas. For instance, it is built by respect for the rule of law, reform of the judiciary and the fight against corruption. Such reforms are above all in the interest of every Armenian and will have a positive impact on people's day to day lives. But they also mean that Armenia will be able to benefit from the European Union's doctrine of “more for more” in terms of our cooperation - put simply: the more reforms you carry out, the more the EU will be able to support the Republic of Armenia.
