US NOT TO REVISE ITS POLICY ON ARMENIA

YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 4, ARMENPRESS: Kiro Manoyan, the head of the
Armenian Cause office, closely affiliated with the Armenian
Revolutionary Federation, downplayed today concerns that the re-elected
president George W. Bush may revise the US policy on Armenia as the
Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) and other American
organizations voted for John Kerry. He said defending a candidate in US
elections does implicate hostility.
"At any rate if the US's Armenian policy is revised following the
outcome of this election I think it will be revised for the better, as
all those policy- makers who saw the decisiveness and consistency of
ANCA and the Armenian community will try to win its support," he told
Armenpress. He added many American Armenians voted, however, in favor
of Bush.
