ARMENIAN AND AMERICAN PRESIDENTS HAVE TELEPHONE CONVERSATION
ArmInfo. Armenian and American presidents Serzh Sargsyan and Barack
Obama have had a telephone conversation at the initiative of US
president during S. Sargsyan’s stay in Los Angeles. To recall, the
Armenian president visited the City of Angels within the frames of
the pan-Armenian tour.
As the presidential press service reports, B. Obama expressed
assistance to S. Sargsyan in his efforts aimed at normalization of
the Armenian-Turkish relations. US president confirmed his country’s
official stance once again, that is, the process of normalization of
the Armenian-Turkish relations should run without any preconditions
and should not be linked with the Karabakh conflict settlement.
President Sargsyan expressed his gratitude to US president for
assistance in the Armenian-Turkish process, and shared his impressions
from the pan-Armenian tour. The S. Sargsyan emphasized that the
Armenians’ concern regarding the Armenian-Turkish process is natural
in view of the fact that the Armenian people suffered Genocide by the
Ottoman Empire, which president Obama has multiply mentioned about
in his speeches.
President Sargsyan also thanked B. Obama for the great mediatory
work by the USA within the frames of OSCE Minsk Group and emphasized
Armenia’s readiness to move forward to achieve peaceful settlement
of the problem, the cornerstone of which should become free will
expression of the NKR people, that forms the basis of OSCE MG Madrid
