The two ministers also addressed the main regional issues concerning
the Caucasus and relations with Iran. Regarding the former, Minister
Terzi expressed Italy’s support for the Minsk Group’s efforts in OSCE
negotiations with Azerbaijan.

Finally, Terzi and Nalbandian underscored the importance of cultural
relations between Rome and Jerevan, which are especially intense during

anniversary of the first book printed in Armenian 500 in that city,
while 2012 has been declared the Year of the Armenian Book in Italy.

“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
