WELCOME SPEECH OF THE PRIME MINISTER

WELCOME SPEECH OF THE PRIME MINISTER SERGE SARGSYAN AT THE OPENING CEREMONY OF THE FOURTH PAN-ARMENIANSUMMER GAMES

I welcome you on the occasion of the holding of the fourth Pan Armenian Games. It is gratifying that events with pan-Armenian nature are becoming more traditional, expanding the geography and number of participants each year. Pan-Armenian games are one of those events and each time it really becomes a holiday and an unforgettable event for the audience and participants. The previous three games testified that this sporting event greatly contributes to the strengthening of the Homeland-Diaspora ties, by becoming a crucial factor of unifying the Armenian communities. Our compatriots from all over the world get the opportunity to visit different places of Armenia, visit sights, get to know the homeland, interact with their peers and enrich their impressions during the Pan-Armenian Games.
Once again, I welcome this wonderful event, I wish all athletes a thrilling performance, fair competition, for to win the strongest and the worthy, but, most importantly, may the love towards one another and our Motherland rule throughout the games.
