The government of Western Armenia welcomes the visit to Matenadaran of ambassadors accredited to Eastern Armenia. We attach particular importance to this visit, given that each nation has its own profile and its own passport. Matenadaran is the place where the largest collection of spiritual and material culture values of our nation is preserved. Culture is not only the face of a nation, but also its passport. The Armenian nation left an invaluable legacy to human civilization, from Aramazg to today, and no matter how much the nomadic Turkic tribes wanted to destroy it, it is still impossible to alienate the indigenous people from their own face. There is the Armenian, there is his thousand-year-old hereditary code and the culture created by the bearer of this code, the familiarity of which enriches everyone.
