United Armenian Bloc Meets With Aram I

ANTELIAS (Aztag)–United Armenian Bloc candidates for three electoral districts for the upcoming Lebanese parliamentary elections met with His Holiness Aram I–Catholicos of the Holy See of Cilicia Thursday at the Bikfaya Monestary near the Catholicosate.

The pontiff highly praised efforts to institute unity–expressing hope that participants in the election will stay away from advancing personal aspirations and will coordinate the interests of the Armenian community.
