Jan 26, 2009
YEREVAN, JANUARY 26, ARMENPRESS: With the support of Armenian Foreign
Ministry and Armenian embassy in Russia, the Yerevan municipality
will place the memorial stone of the well known chess player Tigran
Petrosian in Moscow. Head of the foreign relations department of the
municipality Davit Gevorgian told today journalists that the drafts
of the memorial stone will be agreed during the upcoming two months.
According to D. Gevorgian, permission for setting a memorial stone
in Moscow is a complicated process as numerous outstanding people
lived in the same building. In spite of this the Moscow authorities
did not reject the initiative of the Armenian side. The work will be
coordinated by Yerevan municipality which is closely cooperating with
Moscow especially during the latest years.
