ArmInfo."A purely formal reason for the visit is a flood, which, unfortunately, also damaged the island of St. Lazarus and the Congregation of the Mkhitarists. 

But, of course,I had to definitely find a reason to visit here, because I had not  had such an opportunity before, and the island of St. Lazarus, the  Congregation of the Mkhitarists is very important in the context of  our history and present. I am convinced that in the future it will  play an important role>, - said Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the  eve, who visited the Mkhitarists on the island of St. Lazarus in  Venice as part of an official visit to Italy.

According to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia, cited by  the press service of the Government of the Republic of Armenia, the  scientific heritage created here, primarily in the field of  Armenology, the Armenian language, and history, really laid the  foundation for a new science and education. "It's also important for  us to value this scientific temple, this spiritual center of  paramount importance in terms of our identity, development and  self-knowledge, and this is really a great honor for me. The most  important thing is that the Congregation of the Mkhitarists was not  irreversibly damaged: the damage will be repaired and I want to go  forward. With all my heart I wish the success of the Congregation of  the Mkhitarists and in general to our people. I would like to say  that in the program of political power that I represent, the Civil  Contract party is one of the cornerstones injuring and developing our  identity.This is really very important for us, and I also want to  emphasize that very often under glossy mottos we actually harm  ourselves, lose our history, lose our trajectory and our idea of the  future. of the important tasks of our government, it is precisely  that we, in harmony with our identity, our history, our past, know  ourselves as a whole, because the process of misunderstanding  ourselves means underestimating the potential that we have as a  people and as a state rstvo. The most important task and goal in  learning and developing this identity is, of course, the future, and  I am convinced that our national unification, the rallying of the  Armenian people is directly connected with the need to better know  ourselves. In this regard, the Mkhitarist Congregation has played a  very important role and should play a very important role. I am sure  that many materials have been investigated, and many more materials  will be investigated here. It should also be the focus of attention  of the Armenian scientific community, and we should also think about  future-oriented cooperation, "the head of the Armenian government  noted.

Nikol Pashinyan noted that he was pleased to meet with the Armenian  community of Venice, and all his foreign visits are always  accompanied by meetings with representatives of the Armenian  community, as this is part of the logic of government. "Our  government has developed a national program in Stepanakert to replace  fragmentation with pan-Armenianism, and this means that we believe  that the Republic of Armenia as a state will be more efficient, more  competitive and strong if it is presented not only as a  representative of Armenian citizens, but also as representative of  the entire Armenian people, "said the head of government.

In his speech, the Prime Minister touched upon the idea of  pan-Armenianism, noting: "For us ideologically, the Republic of  Armenia is not only a state founded by citizens of the Republic of  Armenia, but also a state founded by the Armenian people, because it  is written in the introduction to the Constitution of the Republic of  Armenia. The Republic of Armenia - it is the state of the Armenian  people, the state of all Armenians, regardless of whether they have  de jure citizenship of Armenia or not. Of course, our work and goal  should also be aimed at ensuring that all Armenians in the world also  have e jure citizenship of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic  of Armenia to become the core of life in Armenia has become a  representative of the interests of all Armenians around the world,  and all the Armenians of the world must also act as representatives  of the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Armenia citizen. "  According to Nikolai Pashinyan, there have always been disputes about  national ideology in the history of the Third Republic. The Prime  Minister noted that every Armenian should live in Armenia, regardless  of whether he lives in Armenia or not, since this is exactly what  Pan-Armenianism is. Prime Minister Pashinyan noted that the Armenian  government has received a mandate to speak on behalf of the people of  the Republic of Armenia, and any government in Armenia must have  legitimacy to speak on behalf of the Armenian people, it must be a  government on the national agenda. The head of government said that  during the days of the revolution he received many letters from  Armenians living in different countries of the world in which they  expressed their support and assistance to the revolution. This,  according to Nikol Pashinyan, indicates that in 2018 there was an  all-Armenian process that led to radical changes in Armenia. The  Prime Minister touched upon corruption phenomena and monopolies that  existed in various areas of our country before the revolution, and  noted that as a result of these processes today in Armenia there is a  problem of professional quality in all areas. Now we need to unite  the nationwide potential and focus on the development of the  motherland.

In response to a question about the ideology of national identity and  relations between the diaspora and Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan noted  that the government attaches great importance to cooperation with the  diaspora on many issues, but there is a problem with the  participation of representatives of the Armenian diaspora. The Head  of Government said that he had instructed the Chief Commissioner for  Diaspora Affairs to hold consultations with the widest possible  circle of representatives of the Armenian Diaspora and submit  proposals on the formation of a pan-Armenian structure.

Nikol Pashinyan also touched upon the issue of the longevity of  Armenian statehood and emphasized that dependence on geopolitical  factors should be minimized as much as possible, and for this we need  a new national thinking, a new approach.
