By Tigran Liloyan


Armenian President Robert Kocharyan met on Friday with the head of
the World Armenian Congress and the Union of Armenians of Russia, Ara
Abramyan. They discussed prospects for cooperation between the
organisations and the country's authorities.

The union has done substantial and consistent work to coordinate ties
between Armenian communities in Russian regions and Armenia.

It will allow them to participate more actively in all-Armenia
actions - forums, congresses and conferences, the president believes.

Proposals of the union on activities in Armenia and participation in
various national-scope events were also under discussion.

The president also told about settlement of the Karabakh conflict and
the prospects for normalisation of relations with Turkey.
