GREEK PRESIDENT VISITED ARMENIAN GENOCIDE MEMORIAL COMPLEX

05.11.2019


Prokopius Pavlopoulos, the President of the Hellenic Republic, visited the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex and paid tribute to the memory of the Armenian Genocide martyrs. The Greek President was accompanied with Eric Grigoryan, the Minister of Environment, Hayk Sargsyan, the Deputy Mayor of Yerevan, Fadey Charchoghlyan, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Armenia to Greece, and Mrs. Nafsika Nancy Eva Vrayla, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Hellenic Republic to the Republic of Armenia.

The guests were welcomed by Harutyun Marutyan, AGMI Director who presented to the guests the history and symbolism of the Genocide Monument.

The Greek President laid a wreath at the Genocide Monument after which the members of accompanying delegation put flowers at the eternal fire.

The Greek delegation also visited the Genocide Museum, where Hasmik Martirosyan, AGMI French language guide presented the museum exhibition. At the end of the visit the Greek President left a note in the Memory Book of honorable guests. Than in a conversation with the journalists he mentioned:

“The memory of the Armenian Genocide must be preserved, after all, if genocides are forgotten, those crimes will be repeated again. This is a message from Yerevan to everyone. We see similar events being repeated all over the world, and there are people who are enemies of human and civilization. We have survived the same horror as the Armenians. I am very grateful to the President and Government of the Republic of Armenia for hosting us, because Armenian-Greek relations have a long history, and we must preserve this shared memory”.

AGMI Director gifted to the Greek President some of AGMI publications. Prokopius Pavlopoulos, the President of the Hellenic Republic planted a fir in the Memory Alley.
