Today, in the framework of the seminar organized by the Women’s Council of the Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) on the occasion of the Party’s 20th anniversary, President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan met in Tsakhkadzor with the representatives of the RPA Women’s Council. As the leader of the Party, President Sargsyan congratulated fellow party members and stressed the importance of women’s role and active participation in political life. Serzh Sargsyan expressed readiness to discuss with the ladies all their ideas and initiatives, encourage and support their implementation.

“We are a conservative party and in our system of values family and children are certainly are among the most significant components; however neither I, nor the leadership of the Party would ever suggest that active life of the female-members of the RPA or active life of the Armenian women in general should be limited to building a strong, good family, bringing up children, and creation of warm family atmosphere. No, definitely not. We have always maintained the necessity of women’s active involvement. It would be an unjustified luxury for us to attempt to curb women’s potential. I have said on many occasions and will repeat that we have always been endorsing the female members of the Party but still have much to do. Undoubtedly, women’s participation on the mid-level is pretty impressive. But all women, including members of the Republican Party and the entire state structure must be confident that their good performance, good work result in professional advancement. This is very important. And we already see in our ranks very active individuals, including women,” the President of Armenia said.

Serzh Sargsyan invited the ladies to hold an open and candid discussion and answered the questions raised by the representatives of the RPA Women’s Council pertaining to the different areas of the country’s internal life, as well as to Armenia’s foreign policy.

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the RPA and for active partisan work, Serzh Sargsyan handed RPA diplomas to a group of ladies.
