NNA - Caretaker Minister of Culture, Judge Muhammad Wissam Al-Murtada, and Head of the International Committee of the Hamazkayin Association, Zakar Kichichan, signed a memorandum of understanding between the ministry and the association for cooperation in various cultural sectors.
During the signing ceremony that took place at the Culture Minister's office in Sanayeh, Kichichan thanked Al-Murtada for his cooperation and support in completing the MOU, which he pledged to be implemented effectively for all stakeholders' interest.
In turn, Al-Murtada expressed hope to revive, through signing the memorandum, the memory of the Lebanese and trigger them to think carefully about the reality of the Armenians, whose despair did not creep into their souls despite their suffering and the difficult circumstances they faced and their defiance of all the countries that conspired against them..."Instead, they decided to live united in solidarity and openness to the other...and opted to decide their own destiny and integrated into our society while preserving their identity," he added.
"I had previously indicated and reiterated that the role of the Ministry of Culture is raising awareness today more than ever, especially in light of the current conditions, to protect the Lebanese entity, and culture, in all its dimensions," he said.
"The Ministry is open to all meaningful cultural projects, and the hand is extended to all Lebanon's friends for cooperation in this field," Al-Murtada asserted.
