An exhibition at the Council of Europe headquarters marks the 2800th anniversary of Armenia’s capital Yerevan.
The exhibition was unveiled on Wednesday by Armenia’s Permanent Representative to the Council of Europe Paruyr Hovhannisyan and President of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities Anders Knape.
“One cannot but love Yerevan, its unique atmosphere and people that create it, its classical music and jazz evenings,” Paruyr Hovhannisyan said in his opening remarks. He said the exhibition is yet another expression of love for Yerevan.
Anders Knape noted, in turn, that although 2800-year-old, Yerevan is a young and lively city. He noted that he was following the velvet revolution in Armenia with great interest and pledged his willingness to develop close cooperation with the country.
The opening of the exhibition was followed by an official reception featuring Ambassadors accredited to the Council of Europe, diplomatic, representatives of the CoE Secretariat and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities.
