The Armenian community in Colorado has received reports of an upcoming visit by Lilit Makunts, the Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia to the United States of America, scheduled for April 25-26 in Denver. However, this visit has sparked opposition from major community organizations due to widespread dissatisfaction with the current Armenian government’s policies and actions. Notably, the visit was not arranged in collaboration with any community organizations, and leading groups have declined to endorse or participate in any associated meetings or gatherings. Additionally, a private, invitation-only meeting is scheduled with Ambassador Makunts, from which community organizations are excluded.

The visit follows a consistent pattern of Ambassador Makunts facing rejection wherever she travels, underscoring widespread discontent with the Armenian government’s policies.
