Dear Editor:
Your editorial in the December 17th issue of Immigration Daily which reports that Armenia is included in the Justice Department registry list is incorrect. Please see the corrected version of the federal register, as well as our release below.

"The Armenian Assembly of America has been informed that the Federal Register mistakenly included the Republic of Armenia on a list of countries whose non-immigrant male nationals over the age 16 residing in the US must register with the US INS. The Assembly has been assured that Armenia's name will be removed from this list as soon as possible. "This is a very serious matter and we are relieved that the Administration is correcting the situation in an expeditious manner," Assembly Board of Directors Chairman Peter Vosbikian said. The Armenian Assembly of America is the largest Washington-based nationwide organization promoting public understanding and awareness of Armenian issues. It is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt membership organization."

Please advise that you will print a correction in tomorrow's edition.

Joan Ablett, Director of Public Affairs
Armenian Assembly of America

Editor's Note: The Department of Justice announced on Monday, December 16, 2002 that Armenians would be subject to Special Registration along with Saudis and Pakistanis, only to withdraw Armenia from this list on Wednesday, December 18, 2002.
