ArmInfo. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan during a rally in Los Angeles "Grand Park" invited all Armenians present to celebrate New Year and Christmas holidays in Yerevan.
So, according to the Prime Minister, today many Armenians are returning to Armenia. "Compared to 2015, the positive balance of crossing the border of Armenia has grown 32 times - can you imagine? But I want to talk about the great repatriation, saying that living in Armenia is not just living in Armenia physically. Living in Armenia also means to be obsessed with Armenia. I want to say that life in Armenia is not means physically staying in Armenia 12 months a year and, in general, life any country in the 21st century does not mean that is physically located in the same place 12 months of the year ", Pashinyan said. According to him, the modern world is such that many people, especially successful ones, spend most of the year traveling. "And I want to send a message to our compatriots: Great repatriation also means, for example, the need for a physical stay in Armenia for a month or two in a year and life in Armenia. Today in Armenia and Yerevan, real estate prices are rising, and have a house in Yerevan, in Armenia means to make a good and reliable investment. And for those who do not yet have a home in Armenia: every Armenian must have a home in Armenia. Repatriation means to have a business in Armenia and, most importantly, to have citizenship of the Republic of Armenia. Every Armenian should have citizenship of the Republic of Armenia ", Pashinyan said.
As the Prime Minister pointed out, unfortunately, today the tradition of celebrating the New Year outside Armenia is formed. In this regard, according to him, the country's authorities are thinking about how to give the upcoming New Year a special, fresh spirit, to make the Christmas holidays special. "Yerevan usually empties during the New Year holidays. We want to make the streets and squares of Yerevan full of people celebrating the New Year and Christmas holidays. We are currently implementing a large program to invite you all to celebrate New Year in Yerevan," he declared.
At the end of his speech, the head of government wished all those present to fix that further Armenia is not a small country. "But due to the fact that the physical borders of the republic have undergone changes, and for the reason that from now on Armenia represents not only the Armenians living in the RA, but all 10 million Armenians," he said.
