The meeting of Zareh Sinanyan—the High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs of Armenia—with the Armenian community in Los Angeles failed.
The respective footage posted on the Internet shows that when Sinanyan entered the hall where the aforesaid meeting was to be held, the participants met him by chanting "Zareh, traitor."
The event organizer attempted to calm down the situation, but the representatives of the local Armenian community continued to criticize Sinanyan.
The situation became tenser, the participants of the meeting chanted "Artsakh [(Nagorno-Karabakh)] is Armenian" and made several other remarks, and during that time Zareh Sinanyan left the hall.
Then a scuffle broke out between the people in the hall.
Also, the people who had come to the meeting with the High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs had brought a banner that read "Zareh Sinanyan traitor," in English.
