    Շնորհավորում ենք ՀՀԴ Բյուրոյի բոլոր նոր ընտրված անդամներին։
    Ուրախ ենք որ ՀՀԴ կուսակցությունը նորից դառնում է Հայաստանակենտրոն։
    Անհրաժեշտ է նաև որ նույնպես տեղի ունենան հետևյալ բարեփոխությունները.
    1. ՀՀԴ Բյուրոն ֆիզիկապես տեղափոխվի Հայաստան կամ Արցախ,
    2. ՀՀԴ կուսակցությունը դուրս գա Միջազգային Սոցալիստական կազմակերպությունից,
    3. Բացվեն ՀՀԴ կուսակցության արխիվները և կալանքից ազատվեն մեր ազգային գործիչների վերաբերյալ բազում փաստավավերագրական նյութերը (ներառյալ ձայնաերիզները և տեսաերիզները)։

    It would have been better had there been members elected from Russia, USA,

    Europe(especially France) or Australia, where nearly half of the Armenian Global population

    reside in those countries, and a better representation would have been portrayed! Anyway the

    coming 4 years’ actions mirror the facts. Good luck to the new Bureau and may God bless our

    New World Congress.
