A big thank you to U.S. Ambassador to Armenia Lynne Tracy for these touching words and kind wishes to the Armenian people for this new year.

Cheers for a bright 2021 full of hope and prosperity

Իմ սիրելի հայ բարեկամներ ու գործընկերներ,

Անցնող տարվա ընթացքում՝ համավարակից մինչև Լեռնային Ղարաբաղի հակամարտություն, շատ էին մարտահրավերները, դժվարություններն ու կորուստները։ Այս տոնական օրերին շատ ընտանիքներում սեղանի շուրջ դատարկ տեղեր կլինեն ․․․ հուսով ենք, որ այս ընտանիքները կկարողանան սփոփանք ու խաղաղություն գտնել։ 2021 թվականին ընդառաջ՝ հուսով ենք նաև, որ Նոր տարին առավել բարեհաճ օրեր կբերի։ Հայ ժողովուրդը տոկուն է, և ես վստահ եմ, որ առջևում առկա են վառ ապագայի հեռանկարներ ու հնարավորություններ։

Այս Նոր տարին թո՛ղ բոլորի համար լինի խաղաղության ու առողջության տարի։

Լին Թրեյսի

Dear Armenian Friends and Colleagues,

Between the pandemic and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, this has been a year of challenges, difficulties, and great sorrow. At this holiday season, there will be empty places at many family tables, and we hope that these families will find a special peace and comfort. As we look ahead to 2021, we will also hope for better days. Armenians are a resilient people, and I am confident that there are opportunities ahead for a successful future.

Wishing all a peaceful and healthy New Year!

Lynne Tracy

Constructed at 1665 meters high at the peak of a steep and wooded mountain, the only way to get in is a path that is located under the southwestern fortress wall

Denying, altering and falsifying History and the real facts about these centuries old #Cultural Heritage is a crime not only a forgery of the Past but also a crime committed against the future #generations.

These monasteries built by #Armenians at the cradle of Christianity are not only testimonials to the Armenian Culture... they are also here to depict the paths of civilizations.
Denying their #TRUE Story is a cultural genocide and an act of crime against World and Human Heritage.

Share and reshape so that the light of truth doesn't get eclipsed!

This is #Amaras monastery in Martuni founded by St. Gregory the Illuminator at the dawn of the fourth century. In 338 his grandson, St. Grigoris was buried here.

Les trésors d'architecturaux, religieux et culturels sont les plus forts témoignages qui ont résisté à l'épreuve du temps afin de démonstrer notre identité et notre patrimoine #Arméniens.
