YEREVAN (—The Armenian Revolutionary Federation will meet with President Serzh Sarkisian’s during his recently announced tour of Diaspora communities to discuss the Turkey-Armenia protocols, said the party’s political director Giro Manoyan on Friday.

During a meeting Thursday with His Holiness Karekin II, Catholicos of All Armenians on Thursday, the president announced his plans to visit Diaspora communities of New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Beirut and Rostov-on-Don, beginning on Oct. 1.

Manoyan said the Diaspora tour will provide the president a unique opportunity to understand the concerns of the Armenian people.

“Since our concerns are shared by those both inside and outside Armenia, and by hearing those concerns, Serzh Sarkisian will be guided in the right direction,” said Manoyan. asked the president’s deputy chief of staff Vigen Sargsian whether the ARF would be included in the Diaspora meetings.

“It is obvious that the ARF has a major role in these communities and any discussions without the ARF would be futile,” said Sargsian adding that the party had been invited as was the case when the matter was being discussed in Armenia.

    There were so many hints in January of 1915 that the Armenian Genocide of April 24, 1915 is coming. We had chosen to hope and believe.

    There were so many hints in January of 2009 that Obama will artfully circumvent his electoral promise of recognition of the Armenian Genocide on April 24, 2009. We still were reading his speech and trying to understand.

    There are so many hints that Artsakh will lose its independence in the mid October 2009 . And so the Armenia. Still reading text of Protocols and commenting!

    Here is the far not full list of major contributors to the disaster coming:
    Countries: Ottoman Turkey, UK, USA, Israel, contemporary Turkey, Georgia.

    There must be some kind of force to stop this ill president to damage the country and nation. Being president does not mean that he has card blanch to do anything he wants to. Isn’t there any constitutional power that can stop this traitor? Not only this idiot should be stopped, he should also be impeached.

    I hope Mr. Serge Sargsyan has sharpened his political antennas, before guiding Armenia into dark corners of
    our sad history, where all those “open wounds” still is fresh, and indeed, hurting our nation.
