“Frankly speaking, I think that children's holiday is our common holiday as each of us, no matter how old he is stays a child for his parents. This feeling is particularly characteristic for Armenians, as parents never stop taking care of their children. Even when the children become parents themselves. In my opinion, it is one of our best features and I hope we will never lose it. At eh same time the ties between parents and children are also expressed in their love for their native land and state. And we must hand down this traditions to our children so that they go on the matter of strengthening our country and our state”, said the Mayor of Yerevan.
