ArmInfo. The delegation led by  the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan during an official  visit to Italy visited the Monastery of the Mekhitarist Congregation  on the island of St. Lazarus in Venice.

At first, a narrow meeting was held with delegates of the Venice  Congregation of the Mekhitarists, then, the Prime Minister toured the  monastery, visited the library and later left a note in the "Golden  Book".

He particularly noted: "We have come to express our support to the  flood-affected Mekhitarist Congregation. I am glad that no  irreversible damage was inflicted to it. I would also like to express  the Armenian people's gratitude to the Mekhitarist Congregation for  being one of the sources of our modern education, science and arts.  At the times when the Armenians' identity was jeopardized in the  Homeland, the Mekhitarist Congregation became in fact a temple of  preservation of our language, history and identity."

Then the Prime Minister met with the delegate of the Venice  Congregation of the Mekhitarists, the leader of the diocese of the  Armenian Catholic Church of Turkey, Archbishop Levon Zekiyan. "It is  a great honor for me to be here. I regret that the reason for  visiting is the flood, but on the other hand, I am glad that there  was no irreversible damage. To be present here is very exciting for  me. I am sure that the Congregation of the Mekhitarists is a symbolic  monument of science and culture, will continue to do its job and its  role for a long time. The scientific heritage created here and  relating, first of all, to Armenian studies, the Armenian language,  our history, is laid in the foundation of our new education and  science, which is very important, "said the head of government of  Armenia.
