This place is  magnificent and impressive. This small country is aware of the  importance of education, culture, science and is looking to the  future. For us, this is, in a sense, an example of a good and  friendly rival, because in the 21st century we must also contribute  not only to the development of our country, but also to world  culture, to the development of science and new technologies, since  this is the future>, the president said.  Sarkissian noted that the  current changes in the world pose problems for all countries, but  each difficulty is also an opportunity for those nations that are  able to concentrate, unite and have a clear program for moving  forward.
