YEREVAN – President Armen Sarkissian of the Republic of Armenia received a delegation of leaders from the Armenian Democratic Liberal Party (ADL) Central Committee and Supreme Council in his offices on Monday, May 21.
For over half an hour, a series of critical issues were examined which concern the Armenians of the homeland as much as the Armenians of the diaspora. The judgments and observations generally were positive under the circumstances created by the Velvet Revolution.
In particular, the possibility of forthcoming elections, the question of repatriation, the manner of assuring economic investments were discussed, along with the new trajectory of Armenian diaspora-homeland relations.
The ADL delegation included Vartan Nazerian, president of the Supreme Council, Hagop Avedikian, chairman of the Central Committee, Edmond Y. Azadian, Hagop Vartivarian, Kevork Marashlian, Armen Manvelyan, Khoren Kalinian, Edward Manoukian, and Karen Kakoyan.
