Nalbandian invited Erdogan to attend Armenian Genocide centenary ceremony

PanARMENIAN.Net - Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian attended the Ankara-hosted inauguration of Turkey’s new President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

At the ceremony organized for the heads of delegations, Nalbandian had a short conversation with Erdogan, giving him President Serzh Sargsyan’s official invitation to attend the Armenian Genocide centenary event on April 24, 2015.

On August 24, Sargsyan said that Yerevan has received an invitation to the Turkish President-elect Recep Tayyip Erdogan's inauguration ceremony.

“Armenia will probably accept the invitation, with Foreign Minister to attend the ceremony. Nalbandian will ask Erdogan whether he plans to visit Tsitsernakaberd Genocide Memorial in Yerevan on the centenary of the tragedy,” the President said.
