YEREVAN (Armenpress)–The Armenian Revolutionary Federation bloc in the National Assembly invited Armenia’s Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian to a meeting Monday–to discuss recent developmen’s in the peace process–as well as the future activities following last month’s Diaspora-Armenia conference.
Parliamentary bloc chairman Davit Lokian told Armenpress that the differences between the official position of the party and the government’s strategy in addressing the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict were not many–and following discussions with the foreign minister it became evident that the main differences were in the approach and not the principle.
Lokian said that based on Oskanian’s explanations–the current approaches to the peace process are imperative in formatting a future peace agreement.
Lokian also told Armenpress that the ARF has always viewed Karabakh’s independence as a means for an eventual re-unification with Armenia–explaining that the current foreign policy is a stepping stone to the party’s approach which could eventually bring the matter to fruition.
"The government’s position–as it was explained–is in line with our party position," expressed Lokian.
Oskanian also briefed the ARF bloc on the follow-up activities related to the Diaspora-Armenia conference–saying that the process for executing proposals made at last month’s conference has already begun.
