Recent internal political developmen’s in the Republic of Armenia are approaching the brink of outright confrontation between the opposition and the authorities–and threaten the independence of the country–its security–and stability. This tense political environment causes serious concern not only for citizens of Armenia–but also Armenia’s in the Diaspora–including those in the Western United States.
Gravely concerned over these developmen’s–the Central Committee of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Western Region announces the imperative of engaging in political dialogue in order to immediately diffuse the tense situation that threatens our homeland.
In its April 5 announcement–the Armenian Revolutionary Federation’s Supreme Body of Armenia–characterized the political formula for mutual concessions in order to bring the country out of the current impasse.
In turn–we appeal to Armenia’s of Western USA to practice vigilance–to reject deceptive provocations–insulting expressions–and extremist announcemen’s that serve to fuel the already tense situation both in Armenia and the Diaspora–including our region.
American Armenia’s have a historic mission to always stand by and support Armenia. We can uphold this sacred mission only by way of a healthy national outlook. Thus–American Armenia’s must serve as an example to political forces inside Armenia to be able to overcome this difficult phase that threatens our nation.
On this issue–the Central Committee of the ARF Western region–places total faith in the sound judgment of our public.
