"It is the cultural component that creates the atmosphere where political and economic ties can develop. Therefore, today's event is more than just a poetic evening," said Vardan Voskanyan.

Seyed Hossein Tabatabai, Advisor of the Cultural Center of the Islamic Embassy of Iran in Armenia, thanked the staff of the faculty for supporting the organization of the event, as well as the students participating in the meeting.
