Իրոք հայրենասեր պարտաճանաչ և ազնվական մարդ. A life that followed the trajectory of #Armenia's independence. Rest in Peace Amb Viken Tchitetchian.
Immense tristesse d’apprendre le décès de S.E. Viken Tchitetchian, ancien ambassadeur d’Arménie en France. C’est un acteur important des relations d’amitié 🇫🇷 🇦🇲, un diplomate chevronné, un ami fidèle qui nous quitte. Qu’il repose en paix! Ննջե՛ք խաղաղությամբ, սիրելի ավագ ընկեր !

If only we listen to them. Zartnir.am offers a direct opportunity to have impact. "No one pays me for my common sense," its founder says. Stats prove the impact of an idea. If kids read, they will earn more & live better lives. Everywhere. In this case, in #Armenia.

Out of 80 civilian victims, 68 are men and 12 are women. 52 civilians were killed at the place of residence, 15 at the public place, 11 at the place of work, 1 person in the Azerbaijani prison. The majority of civilian victims are people over 63 years old.

Not only is @ftweekend my window to the world, but now the podcasts, hosted by @Lilahrap, just extend the wonder. Her #Greek #Armenian roots just naturally connect to some conversations, offering inclusivity in ways we don't usually get. Thanx @FT. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcas…

searing questions that #Armenia should examine, in relation to the #Karabakh war last year, listed in detailed document. In grim times, that Armenians have such debates is more than a silver lining. Worth reading, incl the footnotes. @OCMediaorg armeniacommission.org/

An incredible decade in the contemp #Armenian experience - @CivilNetTV (media generally) are the first drafts of history. Don't take them for granted. Not #indep media. Not history. Not independence, democracy or sovereignty. Anywhere. In #Armenia (and my other country, too.)
Today, @CivilNetTV turned 10 y/o. Through these years, CivilNet’s staff has been on the ground as witnesses to events. We are those journalists, cameramen & editors. Today, we are in front of the camera remembering the biggest moments of the last decade. civilnet.am/news/633546/10-y…

In this article I argue: 1- Armenia can solve many of its current problems through diplomacy, rather than other means; 2- To do that it needs to bring paradigmatic shift through democratising its diplomatic culture and foreign policy:
While military reforms are needed to preserve what is there, it is only through diplomacy Armenia has a chance to change the new balance of powers in its favor. - @YesVicken writes civilnet.am/news/632381/arme…
