When anyone in Armenia approaches a monument, his or her only goal is to pervert, eradicate, conceal or change. How was it that we Armenians started thinking like this? This is what Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan said with irony during his meeting with members of the Armenian community of Milan today, in response to a question from one of the Armenians of Milan regarding the excavations in Carahunge.
“There is constantly a force that is misleading us and saying that Armenian monuments are being eradicated, if excavations are held in Armenia. Whenever there is a desire to make reforms in the educational system, they say the Armenians’ national identity is being destroyed. Whenever there is a desire to transform universities, they say the government wants to eliminate science in the country. This is not right, people,” the Prime Minister said.
