"This  is a message from Yerevan to everyone. You see that such crimes are  repeated in the world, and there are individuals who are the enemies  of man and civilization. We experienced the same horror as the  Armenians. I am immensely grateful to the President of Armenia and  the Government for hospitality," the President said Greece, recalling  the centuries- old common history, and pointing out the need to  preserve a common memory.  The President of Greece also planted a  blue spruce in the Alley of Remembrance.
