    “Prince Charles will visit historical-cultural sites in Armenia”. Is a visit to the Armenian Genocide monument “Dzidzernagapert” is overlooked or he has planned not to visit. I think visiting “Madenataran” is very important but for a Royal dignitary like Charles to visit and pay his respects to the 1.5 million Armenians perished in the hands of the Ottoman Empire is mandatory, which the current Turkish government is denying with all its propaganda machines that it ever took place. The British are pretty aware of the tragic Armenian Genocide and its facts.

    City authorities have to act! It is almost not possible to enjoy a suny day in downtown Yerevan , drinking a gals of beer without NOT being disturbed by beggars again and again(almost within a half hour 9- 10 beggars asked me and other tourists for money- Two tourist from japan were relay annoyed ….!)

    I grew up in England as a teen- he was Prince then and is now-he knows we are Christians and want a safe world for our children. Their empire is not anything like it was and he deserves a good welcome-The Brits are our friends despite the turks being an ally to them-they know what the turks are all about

    He may bring our Goddess Anahit back from the British Museum as a Royal gesture! We don’t need Lipton Tea or Fish and Chips!
