Today, the main guests of the Cultural Centre were the students and lecturers of YSU Faculty of International Relations, who had come to watch and discuss the pictures “Nakhijevan: the Lost World” and “Reed-Pipe Solo”, directed by Khachatur Margaryan.
The duration of the “Reed-Pipe Solo” is 18 minutes and it was made in 2005. It tells us how the heart of a wounded warrior is full of pride and devotion to his homeland, yet bitter war recollections and personal drama break the relationship with the beloved.
Both films have been shot with the support of the National Cinema Centre of Armenia. The movie “Nakhijevan: the Lost World” is some kind of a documentary. Former dean of the Faculty of International Relations Edik Zohrabyan was the adviser during the shooting of the film.
“Khachatur Margaryan has participated in the Artsakh Liberation Struggle. He has contributed to the formation of our army and statehood. He has also been involved in the military-patriotic education process of our youth,” - said the Director of YSU Cultural Centre Karine Davtyan.
Mr. Margaryan highlighted the fact that the screening is attended by future diplomats and specialists in political science: “Of course, today we often see that the conflicts are resolved via military actions, but this is not the only and final version. If the diplomats work right, everything will be quite well.”
According to him the resolution of many conflicts in our region today leads to the Nakhijevan Question.
“The Nakhijevan Question is out of agenda of the modern policy, an attempt is being made to give to oblivion all that can lead to the resolution. It is the time to raise and discuss it, as this issue cannot be forgotten,” – he said.
The Deputy Chairman of the Union “Nakhijevan”, Chairman of the NGO “Liberation”, freedom fighter Markos Melkonyan, poet Arthur Karents and many others also attended the meeting.
“You are going to protect the interests of Armenia on the international arena tomorrow and you should do all to avoid wars,” - said Markos Melkonyan. He spoke about the years of the Artsakh War, mentioning about many men, who have contributed to this glorious victory. One of those is Vachagan Galstyan, who is now the Head of the Pre-university Education Department of YSU.
Awarding ceremony was also envisaged in the framework of this event. For the contribution to the field of the military-patriotic education Vachagan Galstyan, Dean of the Faculty of History Edik Minasyan, Dean of the Faculty of International Relations Gegham Petrosyan received letters of gratitude of the “Liberation” NGO. Director of YSU Cultural Centre Karine Davtyan received a certificate of honor.
