Armenia’s second president Robert Kocharian was July 16 in the resort
town of Jermuk to meet with participants of annual youth gathering
known as Baze (Hawk) jamboree. The ex-president thanked young Armenians
who are from Armenia and other countries for their support to this
"beautiful initiative" and wished them good moods.

"Being the master of this country means to have strong will and
be persistent. This is what our young people have now," he said,
adding also that he is always next to the state and youth, loves and
respects both.

Defense Minister Seyran Ohanian, head of the Diaspora Committee Hranush
Hakobian traveled also yesterday to Jermuk to meet with gathering’s
participants. The latter had an opportunity to ask a lot of questions.

The defense minister, particularly, was asked about the fate of 4
Armenian civilians captured by Azeri troops in April. He said he had
met with their parents and promised to spare no effort to bring all
back home.

Head of the Armenian Apostolic Church, Catholicos Karekin II, is
expected also to meet with young Armenians in Jermuk. A special
pilgrimage will be organized for them to Saint Gayane Church and
those who would like, will be baptized by the Catholicos in a special
ceremony.
