US Envoy Meets Armenian Opposition Leaders

YEREVAN (RFE/RL)–US Ambassador John Ordway met on Tuesday with the two most senior leaders of Armenia’s opposition–but did not comment on his separate meetings with Stepan Demirchian of the Artarutyun alliance and Artashes Geghamian of the National Unity Party (AMK). Demirchian and Geghamian did not provide details either. Geghamian said only that both the United States and the European Union would like to see a peaceful end to the Armenian political crisis.

"The ambassadors of both the United States and the European Union are calling for all contentious issues to be resolved through negotiations," he said.

The US State Department urged both sides last week to embark on a "dialogue."

Anther opposition rally is planed for Wednesday in Yerevan.
