ANNOUNCEMENT by HCA-Vanadzor
Organization of visits of the Armenian and Azeri intelligentsia to Armenia, Azerbaijan and Nagorno Karabakh, which was initiated by the Armenian and Azeri Ambassadors in the Russian Federation, their meeting in the highest levels had an impact of a light “appearing” in the dark. It strengthened the hope that peace-building activity still has a big unused potential in its depth. The most important thing was that the visit of intelligentsia took place not through a third country but crossing the Armenian-Azeri border.
Our organization, which initiated a number of events with Azeri partners of HCA in order to hold meetings and to form cooperation between different layers of societies involved in the conflict, welcomes and supports especially the initiative of the intelligentsia that is a real example of civil bravery and humanism for all of us.
We express our support to the organizers of the meeting of Armenian and Azeri intelligentsia and the participants, and we hope for the possibility of the peaceful settlement of the conflict. We believe that with such initiatives and steps the responsibility of the political heads becomes bigger in the peaceful way of conflict settlement.
Vanadzor, Republic of Armenia
