ETCHMIADZIN. – Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II on Thursday received the newly appointed Ambassador of Israel to Armenia, Joel Lion, at the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, the latter’s information system informs Armenian News-NEWS.am.

Reflecting on the historical relations and commonalities of the Armenian and Israeli peoples, the Catholicos spoke with sorrow about the tragedies—the Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide—that befell the two peoples in the last century, and touched upon the friendly relations formed between the two peoples’ children in the diaspora.

In his turn, Ambassador Lion highlighted the deepening of cooperation and friendly relations between the two countries—and thanks to dialogue.

The interlocutors exchanged views also on the preservation of the Armenian spiritual and cultural heritage in the territories that came under the control of Azerbaijan as a result of the Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) war in the fall of 22020, and the policy of their appropriation.
