New Consul General to LA Named

LOS ANGELES–With the tour of duty of Armenia’s current Consul General to Los Angeles Armen Liloyan nearing its end, Asbarez has learned from reliable sources that President Serzh Sarkisian has signed an order appointing Grigor Hovannisyan to fill the post.

Prior to assuming this post, Havannisyan served as the founding director of the Shushi Revival Fund, which was established by Yerevan Mayor Yervand Zakharian.

Hovannisyan will begin his tour on February 1.

The ARF Western US Central Committee is planning a reception in Liloyan’s honor Wednesday evening.
