Diaspora Reps Criticize Diaspora Minister for "Heavy-Handedness"

According to a report in the newspaper Hraparak, diaspora representatives who attended the recent roundtable in Yerevan to discuss preparations for the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Genocide expressed dissatisfaction with current Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobyan.

In particular, it was noted that the Armenian representative from Holland was perturbed that the Minister selected a community spokesperson without consulting local Armenians.

Minister Hakobyan retorted that such criticism was unfounded.

The argument was heated enough that President Sargsyan himself had to step in and mend any ruffled feathers.

It seems that some of the diaspora representatives believe that Hakobyan merely pays lip service to their concerns and sees herself as the "boss" of the worldwide diaspora.

Many believe that the Diaspora Ministry should actually be run by someone from the diaspora.
