Yerkir Union calls on Karekin II to raise Javakhk issue

PanARMENIAN.Net - Yerkir Union addressed an open letter to His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch of All Armenians, calling on him to raise the problems of Javakhk Armenians during his visit to Georgia.

“Your Holiness will be in Georgia from June 10 to 15 and will visit the Armenian-populated Samtskhe-Javakhk-Tsalka. You will meet with Catholic Patriarch of All Georgia Ilia II and President Mikheil Saakashvili. You will certainly discuss the status of Armenian Apostolic Church and the issue of reconstruction of Armenian churches. However, the Armenians in Georgia and concerned not only over religious problems,” the letter reads.

“Not only religious but also political, civil, educational and cultural rights of the Armenian population are being violated, forcing Armenians leave their homes and jeopardizing the future of Javakhk.”
