At a joint meeting on March 26 in Stepanakert, at the ARF "Nikol
Douman Center", a number of youth groups drafted a letter addressed
to RMK President Bako Sahakyan, criticizing recent comments of
RoA President Sargsyan made in Syria regarding the possibility of
territorial concessions.

The letter congratulated President Sahakyan for enacting steps to
resettle the territories liberated by Armenians during the war and
praised him for stating that these territories were now an integral
part of the RMK and that this point was duly noted in the nation's
constitution.

Representatives of the various youth groups stated that while the RoA
President could express his personal opinion regarding concessions,
in his official capacity as head of state, he has no right to offer
suggestions regarding the territories of the RMK without the prior
consent of the RMK government and people. The joint letter states
that such remarks by President Sargsyan questions the authority of the
RMK Constitution and the current political line of the RMK government.

The representatives added that the time had come for the signing
of a document between Armenia and Artsakh that would clearly define
the mutual rights and obligations of both states in the process of
garnering international recognition of the RMK
