New York, Washington and Los Angeles fully backed an idea of establishing a World Armenian Organization, the president of the Union of Russian Armenians Ara Abrahamian, told wrapping up his visit to the United States.
Speaking of the results of his trip, Abrahamian emphasized that an idea of calling a World Congress of Armenians in Moscow and establishing a World Armenian Organization at this forum found backing and understanding both from the American Armenian Diaspora and U.S. officials at the highest level.
“We found full understanding and support in New York, Washington and Los Angeles when we described what would be our activities and what tasks we put forth,” he explained.
Abrahamian noted that tasks, which will be set by the future organization, are of humanitarian and global nature. Therefore, they cannot raise objections. For instance one of its aims is economic integration between peoples and states at all levels, which will be promoted by the organization.
It will also promote struggle against international terrorism and poverty, introduction of advanced technologies as well as mediation in rendering humanitarian and social aid. “All this concerns not only Armenians, but is of wider, more likely global nature,” Abrahamian emphasized.
Speaking of aims of his visit to Los Angeles, Abrahamian explained that one of the largest Armenian diasporas outside Armenia lives in that region, and he would like to explain directly to them aims and tasks of creating a World Armenian Organization, for the same of which he held a number of meetings at various levels.
He met representatives of American and local Armenian business quarters and explained the way things are in Russia. According to the union president, all with whom he met during the visit, clearly expressed readiness to back noble and humane aims, to be put forth by the future organization.
