As with the traditional meetings held with local Armenian communities during the President’s overseas trips, Serzh Sargsyan first presented the purpose of his visit, the results of the talks and Armenia’s position in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement process. The President availed himself of the opportunity to speak about issues of pan-Armenian relevance and the strengthening of Armenia-Diaspora ties, as well as about those Homeland development-targeted efforts made by the Swiss Armenian community.
