Giro Manoyan: Armenia and her Political Challenges

On Thursday 3rd November, we were honoured by the presence of ARF Bureau International Secretary Giro Manoyan at the Navasartian Centre, Northfields. Mr Manoyan discussed issues to do with the Javakhk Armenians, recognition of the Armenian Genocide, recognition of Karabakh and others. Afterwards, a variety of questions from the floor were put to Mr Manoyan.

The AYF London Newsletter Sub-Committee asked a number of questions during the session: firstly “Should Armenians be worried about Azerbaijan gaining a UN Security Council seat?” Mr Manoyan answered that Azerbaijan could remove our work and rewind progress and that we should be worried, but in general Azerbaijan cannot achieve too much from its position. Mr Manoyan said that the Armenian Government should have been better organized and put itself forward as a Security Council candidate member to draw votes away from Azerbaijan.

Secondly, on our question about “How does the ARF aim to solve the issues of Javakhk Armenians?”, Mr Manoyan replied that the ARF tries to create economic opportunities for Javakhk Armenians so that Georgian pressure cannot remove the Armenians there from their historic homeland.
