...MEETS WITH PARTY LEADERS
Kocharian on 4 February met with the leaders of Armenia's political parties to brief them on his recent visits abroad and to discuss economic issues, RFE/RL's Yerevan bureau reported. The domestic political situation was not discussed. "Orinats yerkir" leader Sergo Yeritsian said the meeting "marked the beginning of a political dialogue" between the president and other political forces. National Democratic Union Chairman Vazgen Manukian, who last month suggested that Kocharian was not in control of the political situation and should therefore resign, told journalists after the 4 February meeting that he had subsequently held a separate meeting with Kocharian, but he gave no details.
