HIS HOLINESS ARAM I RECEIVES MP HAGOP KASARDJIAN


His Holiness Aram I received Lebanese MP Hagop Kasardjian in his office on
May 12. Kasardjian wanted to thank the Pontiff for the warm wishes of
recovery expressed by the latter following his recent heart surgery. The MP
also wanted to inform His Holiness about the recent developments in the
country's internal political dialogue.

The MP told the Catholicos about the political developments in the country
and issues related to the ongoing dialogue. His Holiness once again praised
the united and positive participation of the Armenian community through the
three Armenian parties.

"This phenomenon should become a constant approach and process in issues
related to our nation, the Diaspora and its communities," he said.
