The statue of Aram Manukyan is subject to transfer – Armen Abroyan: (video)

Armen Abroyan, Head of the Department for Preservation of Historical and Cultural Monuments of the Ministry of Culture, told journalist today that although the expert committee gave the status of republican significance to the monument in the Republican Square, it does not hinder the transfer of the statue of Aram Manukyan located above it.

“The statue of Aram Manukyan has been placed on a structure that has no status yet. The statue was placed without the consent of the Ministry of Culture. My personal standpoint is that it is subject to transference, and the place can be discussed.”

“It would not be a matter for the expert committee to give a status of a republican significance to a number of cultural institutions if there was a literate approach to the construction and no interference in architecture,” said Honored Architect of Armenia Artak Ghulyan.

“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
