Hiroshima Peace Stone was installed in Yerevan’s Children’s Park today.
Representative of Japan’s Embassy in Armenia Takashi Kurai noted that the monument symbolizes a world without war and without racial, religious, language and cultural discrimination.
“In this changing world, our two countries could cooperate on peace,” he said at the opening ceremony of the monument.
Head of the Armenia-Japan parliamentary friendship group Samvel Farmanyan said that few nations are aware of the value of peace.
“I am convinced that few nations are completely aware of the value of peace. Violation of peace may lead to unpredictable consequences and cause innocent victims,” he said, in part.
