On June 22, the RA Ministry of Diaspora launched the second stage of the 2015 “Ari Tun” Program with a grand opening ceremony.
Chief of Staff of the RA Ministry of Diaspora Firdus Zakaryan conveyed the welcome speech of RA Minister of Diaspora Hranush Hakobyan to the participants of the program. “Most of you are visiting Armenia for the first time, but you already have your first impressions and have become familiar with the customs and lifestyles of the host families. This program is a pan-Armenian program since it brings together Armenian children and youth from different countries around the world. Dear children and youth, the people in Armenia wait for you with pleasure. I welcome you to Armenia,” Zakaryan particularly mentioned.
Actor of the Dramatic Theater of Vanadzor and reciter Jivan Sargsyan also greeted the participants of the second stage of the “Ari Tun” Program.
Sargsyan’s speech was followed by a performance by the Krunk Dance Ensemble of the Children’s Creation Center of Yerevan.
The second stage of the “Ari Tun” Program is being held with the participation of 104 young Armenians from 7 countries around the world, including the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Lithuania, Syria and the United States, as well as 13 Syrian-Armenian boys and girls who have moved to Armenia.
