PARIS (Armenpress)–Armenian President Robert Kocharian had an hour-long private conversation with French President Jacques Chirac on Tuesday morning–and later briefed reporters on the focus of those talks that included bilateral relations and the Karabagh conflict. The two presidents also reviewed Armenia’s current domestic situation.
Arriving in Paris on April 25–President Kocharian attended one of Charles Aznavour’s farewell concerts at the Palais de Congres.
The concert–the first in a series of 25 concerts–is in celebration of Aznavour’s 80th birthday on May 22. The packed auditorium greeted the Armenian president–while Aznavour thanked him for accepting his invitation. Aznavour dedicated the concert to Armenia–especially to its younger generation. The proceeds from the concert will be transferred to the Aznavour Pour L’Armenie Foundation for charity projects in Armenia.
The delegation departed for Warsaw late Tuesday–for the World Economic Forum–where Kocharian is scheduled to meet–apart from Polish and Georgian presidents–with his Azeri counterpart Ilham Aliyev.
