YEREVAN — Berge Setrakian, president of the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU), visited Armenia in early September to meet several Armenian officials.
While there, Setrakian met with Karekin II, Catholicos of All Armenians, Armenian President Serge Sargisian, Prime Minister Tigran Sargisian, Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian and Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobyan.
On September 4, Setrakian met with Sargisian at the presidential office, with issues raised regarding the proposed protocols between Armenia and Turkey.
“We know that the authorities in Armenia face a difficult path as they endeavor to build new relations with Turkey without imposed preconditions,” Setrakian said.
“We also believe the government of Armenia shares our serious concerns about the sincerity of Turkey, given its historic anti-Armenian policy that has continued to the present time.”
