ArmInfo. "Being Armenian is interesting, and together we must make us more and more interesting," said Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan during a rally in Los Angeles, touching on the idea of a pan-Armenian movement.
The prime minister recalled that on August 5 at a rally in Stepanakert he talked about the idea of pan- Armenianism. "I am convinced that many of you, if not all, have been following this event, and I don't want to repeat what I said there. I want to add to this the meaning of the idea of pan-Armenianism. This means that all Armenians of the world, without distracting from their daily activities, from their lives, their activities, should have and demonstrate a desire to act for the good of Armenia and Artsakh. I want to emphasize that this word is addressed to the entire Diaspora - America, Europe, Asia, "he said.
According to the prime minister, in practice this does not mean acting against the country of their residence and in favor of Armenia. "My point is that our compatriots living in these countries should make efforts to strengthen friendly relations between these countries and Armenia, to proclaim a new perception of Armenia and its protection. Yes, since we have created a new image of Armenia together, we must continue to proclaim New Armenia or, as they say, to promote it, "he said, expressing the hope that 10 million Armenians around the world will become" promoters of Armenia, because Armenia is our common land, and Armenia is our common homeland."
Nikol Pashinyan expressed hope that after the events in Armenia the interest of Armenian youth in the country will increase. "I was told that this phenomenon already exists, that hundreds, thousands of Armenians - young people in America, everywhere who do not even know how to speak Armenian, have sparked interest in their homeland, their own identity and their history. We in our turn wishing to attract the attention of young people to this new situation, have thought of such a statement or a slogan for them that says: dear compatriots being Armenians is interesting, and together we must make us more and more interesting. Since being an Armenian is really interesting, because Armenian people have not only a great past, not only a great present, but also a much greater future, and today we are building this future together, "said the Prime Minister.
The head of the Armenian government emphasized that the United States has always assisted Armenia and the Armenian people. The Prime Minister thanked the US Congress, members of the California State House of Representatives, who, through their objective activities, contributed to the development of Armenian- American friendly relations, thanked the California House of Representatives for the recognition of the Armenian Genocide and the proclamation of April 24 as Commemoration Day.
The prime minister also thanked the US Armenians for assisting the "velvet revolution". "It doesn't matter which one of you was physically present. We forged this victory together, which brought new glory to Armenia and the Armenian people. Today the whole world considers Armenia to be the hope of democracy and this hope was created by you. Without the Diaspora, without invaluable daily assistance from Diaspora Armenia could not stand on its own. The Diaspora defended the rear of Armenia, nourished Armenia, "Pashinyan said. He thanked the Diaspora for the tremendous help in the Artsakh liberation struggle. "Victory would not have been possible without the assistance of the Diaspora," Pashinyan emphasized. Pashinyan noted the role of traditional parties. The support of Kirk Krkoryan and Charles Aznavour, as the prime minister pointed out, continues to warm the soul of the Armenian people today.
