Address by President Serzh Sargsyan on the 13th conference of the International Association for Armenian Studies
Dear ladies and gentlemen,
I cordially welcome the organizations, participants and guests of the 13th regular conference of the International Association for Armenian Studies. I am very happy that this year, at the invitation of the leadership of the Matenadaran after Mesrop Mashtots the representatives of the association uniting more than 400 Armenologists from 20 countries of the world have gathered in Yerevan, the capital of all Armenians and Armenology.
I think it is emblematic of the first conference of this organization continuing the glorious traditions of the 19th century’s European Armenology and unifying researchers representing the world’s famous universities is organized under the warm and lively roof the Mashtots Matenadaran.
It was just three years ago that the newly-built majestic building of the Matenadaran and later, the renovated old building solemnly opened their doors. With its spacious area, technical equipment and almost tripled staff the Matenadaran complex has all the opportunities to host and hold high-level international conferences. Today all of us can witness one of such successful undertakings.
I welcome you once again on the occasion of the conference of the International Association for Armenian Studies and wish you all fruitful scientific activities.
