The Bureau of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation dispatched a letter to the newly-elected German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder–in which it offers the ARF’s congratulations on Schroeder’s election.
Below is the text of the letter: Dear Mr. Schroeder,
On behalf of the Bureau of the ARF-Dashnaktsoutioun–the Armenian Socialist Party–we would like to congratulate the victory of the German Social Democratic Party and your election as Chancellor of Germany.
A well deserved victory–which opens a new era in Germany and a new age of social policy in Europe. A victory–that will also give a new dynamic to the democratic socialism in Eastern Europe; that will contribute to the constructive cooperation between Armenia and Germany–and will strengthen the relationship between our two fraternal parties.
We would like to extend our well wishes to your party members–your new government and to the people of Germany.
Peno Tontian President of the ARF Bureau
Mario Nalpatian ARF representative to the S.I.
