On the last day of its working visit in Canada, the Armenian delegation led by Defense Minister Vigen Sargsyan was hosted at the AGBU Alex Manoogian School in Montreal.
According to the ministry’s press service, the defense minister was welcomed by the School students, who presented their letter addressed to Armenian soldiers. The kids also performed a small concert at the hall of the School.
Minister Sargsyan noted during his visits to other states he always attached importance to the meetings at Armenian schools, since they play a key role in preserving the Armenian identity.
“Our country is a country with a limited territory and not a very large population. However, our people are bearers of an incomparably greater heritage. Our struggle, the meaning of our existence cannot be limited to our country’s territory, borders or population. We are the bearers of the heritage the creators of which were dreaming about statehood. Today, when we have a state, we should do our best so that Armenia, Artsakh and the Diaspora can together fulfil our centuries-old dreams,” the Armenian official said.
Afterwards, the Armenia delegation visited the Sourp Hagop Armenian School of Montreal and toured the school. Vigen Sargsyan left a note in the school’s honorary guest book.
At the end of the visit in Canada, the Armenian delegation paid tribute to the memory of the Armenia Genocide victims in Montreal.
