Mexican senators Alejandra del Carmen León Gastélum, Cecilia Margarita Sanes García and Indira Kempis Martínez visited the Armenian Genocide Memorial on April 1, accompanied by Honorary Consul of Mexico in Armenia Nikolay Kostandyan.
The guests were welcomed by AGMI Director Harutyun Marutyan, who narrated the history of the creation of the Memorial. He also presented the guests with the history of the three khachkars placed in the Tsitsernakaberd area in memory of the Armenians who died in the massacres in the cities of Sumgait, Kirovabad (Gandzak) and Baku in the last century organised by the Azerbaijani government, and the stories of the five freedom fighters buried in front of Hushapat during the Artsakh war, emphasizing the connection between what happened and the Armenian Genocide.
The Mexican guests put flowers at the Eternal Fire and observed a minute’s silence in memory of the innocent martyrs of the Armenian Genocide.
They also toured the Armenian Genocide Museum accompanied by AGMI senior guide Anjel Tevekelyan, becoming acquainted with the permanent and temporary exhibitions there, after which they left notes in the Memory Book for Honourable Guests.
