After meeting US President Joe Biden, I was once again convinced that the greatness of leaders lies in their modesty. Fr. Koryoun (Hovnan) Baghdasaryan, Chancellor of the Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem, wrote this Facebook—and regarding his talk with Biden, who had visited the Armenian Church at the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem.
"During his visit to the Basilica of the Nativity Bethlehem, Mr. Biden simply approached me as well, shook hands, and gave [me] an opportunity to talk. I told him that I am the grandson of Sassoun immigrants who survived the Armenian Genocide, and I thanked him on my behalf as well for recognizing the Armenian Genocide," Fr. Baghdasaryan added.
