I welcome you in the parliament and congratulate you for enjoying the awards of the National Assembly. These medals and letters of appreciation are meant as a humble credit for your dignified work.
Taking the advantage I once again wish to join the numerous congratulations presented today dedicated to the jubilee of Yerevan State University and on your behalf, I wish new successes and achievements to the most merited higher educational institution, its professors, lecturers and students.
95 years ago by the establishment of Yerevan State University in Armenia the modern higher education was launched. I am myself proud to be a graduate of this higher educational institution, and I would like to record with double pride that both during my educational years, and at the present Yerevan State University is genuinely at the heart of higher educational institutions of Armenia, representing a respective leader in providing knowledge, education quality, building highly-qualified experts, professors, and lecturers.
Though Yerevan State University is 95 years old it always seems young to me. This is a respective age, furthermore it is the age which gives an opportunity to strive to the future with youth energy and enterprise , pursue new goals and reach them, because every year the higher educational institution get s filled with students’ energy the way its pulse beats lively and actively.
I was lucky to have such lecturers, who continue the work of their previous reputable professors' contributions and traditions, as a live memory firmly embedded not only in the memory of the University students, but also the graduates of other higher educational institutions. Those people served as pedagogues, scientists and tutors, lecturers, parents and friends for students at the same time. The number of those professors is endless, and nevertheless, I would like to mention in particular Levon Nersisyan, Benik Yuzbashyan, Mkrtich Mkryan, Haykaz Zhamkochyan, Sahak Bazyan, Hovhannes Barseghyan, Garnik Ananyan, Vazgen Gabrielyan and others. Taking into account the continuing traditions of already more than nine decades of Yerevan State University traditions, I am sure that the present faculty of the higher educational "mother" institution is the decent inheritors of them.
Yerevan State University always strives to rise its ranking to be a permanent leader. I am convinced that at the next anniversary YSU will record greater successes, to which, certainly, you also will continue to have major contribution due to your work, dear friends.
Once again I congratulate all of you and wish you health, welfare, optimism and new effective initiatives.”
