“Dear Mr. Zatikyan, we highly appreciate your input and participation in animating the cultural life of the French-Armenian community as well as the development of cooperation between Armenia and the Diaspora. Over the past five years, the “Music and Dance Academy” you created had an important contribution to the efforts of preserving our national identity. I am convinced, that living away the motherland, you are patriotically struggling to maintain the honor of the Armenians.

We also welcome your close cooperation with Artsakh’s “Sayat-Nova” State Musical College. We will be happy to see the staff and students of the Academy every year at events organized by the Ministry of Diaspora and other institutions in Artsakh and Armenia.”
