TSAKHKADZOR, Armenia (Combined Sources)—While speaking to participants of the fifth All Armenian Olympiad of Armenian language and literature on Saturday, President Serzh Sarkisian was confronted with a question about the historic Armenian territories in Western Armenia.
Sarkisian’s response: “everything depends on the young generation.”
A student asked Sarkisian whether Western Armenia, with Mount Ararat, will ever be united with Armenia.
“Everything depends on the young generation. Every generation has some goal to achieve,” said the President.
“The current generation defended and liberated a part of Armenian land. If the future generation makes much effort then Armenia will be one of the best states in the world,” said Sarkisian.
“Generally, the power of the state is not defined through its territory. The state should be modern, secure and prosperous. The Armenian people are able to achieve their goals. And they will if they believe in it,” added President Sargsyan.
