Armenian Square Inaugurated in the Central Park of Evreux, France

On April 7, Jean-Louis Debre, President of the French National Assembly, and
Eduard Nalbandian, Armenia’s Ambassador to France, formally inaugurated a
square in the central park of the city of Evreux in Normandy. They planted
an apricot-tree brought from Armenia for this special occasion.

In his speech, the President of the National Assembly spoke about warm and
deep relations between the two nations. He underscored that the nature of
the Armenia-France relationship today is very fraternal, and the best
illustration of that is the Year of Armenia in France which begins this
September.

Meanwhile, the Armenian Ambassador noted that the apricot tree is an
appropriate symbol of Armenian-French relations – with roots in French soil
and fruit bearing an Armenian name.

In their talks prior to the ceremony, the President of the Assembly and the
Armenian ambassador discussed current issues having to do with
Armenian-French relations.
