Our country is really a home for the Yezidis livinf in Armenia and from this point of view it is not surprising that the Yezidis worldwide also have their contribution to the issue of strengthening and flourishing Armenia and its capital, Yerevan.
Armenians and Yezidis have always been side by side sharing hardships and joys and which has been and will be highly appreciated. An example of such relations is the fact that there is a representative of Yezidi community in the Republican faction of the Council of Elders of Yerevan which proves that Yezidis are fully integrated in the process of solution of the problems concerning our society.
