Diaspora Ministry Calls For Investment In Javakhk


Aug 17th, 2009

YEREVAN (news.am)-Armenia’s deputy Diaspora minister Stepan Petrosyan
called on the Armenian business community to invest in Javakhk in
an effort to curtail immigration from Georgia’s Armenian-populated
region to Armenia.

He urged the business community to make investments, as a result
of which employment opportunities would increase. He said, the main
reason for the large number of immigrants from Javakhk was the poor
economic condition in the region.

He also added that the Diaspora Ministry did its utmost to involve
Javakhk Armenians in all of its programs.

Petrosyan also addressed concerns that the Georgian authorities had
banned educational books and other supplies to Javakhk.

He said that the matter was being addressed by the education and
foreign ministries.

"We hope the problem will be resolved. There is no Armenian literature
in Georgia. What is the ban aimed at?" he said.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
