PM Sarkisian Praises Armenian Environmental Movement

December 10, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Prime Minister Sarkisian heaped praise on Armenia’s increasingly vocal environment protection groups as dozens of their supporters in the United States demonstrated during his weekend visit to California.

The small crowd gathered outside the Burbank headquarters of a U.S. diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church as its top cleric, Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, met with Sarkisian. The protesters were mainly Armenian Americans and U.S.-based citizens of Armenia. Many of them held placards denouncing they see as a heavy environmental cost of metal mining in Armenia.

Sarkisian spoke with them after the meeting with the archbishop. “We are closely following your movement and are aware of your concerns,” he said, praising “positive results” of its high-profile campaigns in Armenia.
