Feb 28, 2008
YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 28, NOYAN TAPAN. The presidency of the Forum of
Armenian Associations in Europe has spread a statement, with which it
calls Armenian organizations, unions, and communities functioning
in European countries, which are not members of the Forum yet,
for consolidating around the Forum taking part in the latter’s
proceedings. The process of reregistration of organizations-members
of the Forum and joint elaboration and coordination of 2008 programs
is underway at present.
The statement emphasized that the main goal of the unification
of Armenian organizations in Europe is efficient implementation of
programs favorable for the nation, coordination of lobbyist activities,
establishment of cooperation between structures functioning in
economic, cultural, and many other spheres in Armenia and in the
Diaspora and individuals, which in its turn will result in Armenia’s
strengthening and will give a possibility to efficiently resist the
new challenges faced by the country.
The statement was adopted at the special sitting of the Forum’s Board
held lately in Vienna (Austria), presided over by Toros Sakerian,
the Honorary Chairman of the Forum of Armenian Associations in
Europe. The same day Ashot Grigorian, the Chairman of the Armenian
community of Slovakia, a member of the Forum presidency, was elected
