Tigran Sargsyan: “Our language will bring us together to make a unified fist”

 Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan attended the opening of Diaspora Ministry-hosted “Armenian language is in my heart” pan-Armenian youth conference in Yerevan.

Welcoming the participants on behalf of the Government, the Prime Minister said. “We attach great importance to all pan-Armenian events. This is why the Ministry of Diaspora was et up at the initiative of the President of the Republic of Armenia for the first time five years ago to unite Armenians around the world. Every week a language dies in the modern world, which means that the bearers of a specific language, alias an ethnic group disappears on the globe. Competition is growing keener in the 21st century, especially among and between nations, with the language proving to be the main pledge for keeping one’s ethnic identity. Our language will bring us together to make a unified fist, which can help us defy many challenges ahead.”

According to the Prime Minister, the modern world has entered a new stage, which is characterized by rapid changes and our young people should be able to keep track of their identity. As the chief driving force behind the Armenian identity, our statehood has helped us overcome many global and regional threats and challenges over the past couple of decades.

“We are building a statehood to implement our youth’s desire to preserve national values and ethnic identity. From this perspective, Nagorno-Karabakh is struggling for survival. The Artsakh issue is that of the future of our nation. The perception of this problem by young Armenians is the key to a safe future because we cannot achieve a fair settlement of the problem without unity,” the head of government emphasized.

Tigran Sargsyan believes that having a powerful army, for the first time in history our people can provide for the nation’s security.

“The modern world is a world of knowledge, where the Armenian nation has a competitive advantage. It is time our youth proved that we are part of the global competition among nations. In the 21st century, competition has moved to the intellectual field of knowledge, and this means that the number one problem is the formation of such an educational system that will give you the opportunity of getting competitive knowledge,” the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister stressed the importance of the activities of Luys Foundation, which was established at the initiative of the President of the Republic of Armenia. Note that the Foundation subsidizes the scholarship of Armenian students at the world's top 10 universities.

Scheduled for April 22-24, the conference is attended by 500 young people from 30 countries. Issues of nationwide importance will be discussed, including new approaches to achieving international recognition of the Armenian Genocide, peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict, language and culture-related problems etc.
