STEPANAKERT, JUNE 23, ARTSAKHPRESS-ARMENPRESS: On June 22, Narine Aghabalyan – Artsakh’s minister of culture and youth affairs held a meeting with Mr. Poschet.
During the meeting Aghabalyan said that cultural dialogue has a key role simultaneously with political dialogue. Highlighting similar meetings with European parliamentarians, the Artsakhi minister noted that this format also contributes to the global recognition of the country, and as result of such visits the voice of the people of Artsakh becomes accessible to the European community, as well as the creative minds and peaceful aspirations.
Minister Aghabalyan presented the cultural life of Artsakh and noted that although for already 25 years the people are living in ‘peace’, they never stop being creative, and moreover continue to expand cultural ties with various countries.
