YEREVAN (Tert.am)—The Armenian Revolutionary Federation will meet with President Serzh Sarkisian’s during his recently announced tour of Diaspora communities to discuss the Turkey-Armenia protocols, said the party’s political director Giro Manoyan on Friday.
During a meeting Thursday with His Holiness Karekin II, Catholicos of All Armenians on Thursday, the president announced his plans to visit Diaspora communities of New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Beirut and Rostov-on-Don, beginning on Oct. 1.
Manoyan said the Diaspora tour will provide the president a unique opportunity to understand the concerns of the Armenian people.
“Since our concerns are shared by those both inside and outside Armenia, and by hearing those concerns, Serzh Sarkisian will be guided in the right direction,” said Manoyan.
Tert.am asked the president’s deputy chief of staff Vigen Sargsian whether the ARF would be included in the Diaspora meetings.
“It is obvious that the ARF has a major role in these communities and any discussions without the ARF would be futile,” said Sargsian adding that the party had been invited as was the case when the matter was being discussed in Armenia.
