“I don’t think that the Mayor has destroyed cultural structures,” said Minister of Culture Armen Amiryan today after the Government session, assessing the activities of Yerevan Mayor Taron Margaryan.
“As for Taron Margaryan, he very well carries out his responsibilities, obligations. I can assess his work sufficient,” he added.
In reply to the question whether Armen Amiryan is pleased that historical-cultural values have been destroyed in Yerevan, Amiryan answered, “You know, if we continue assessing like that, it means that we will not be able to implement investment projects. Let’s be more tolerant and understand what was destroyed, when and by whom.”
The Minister also touched upon “Old Yerevan” project, noting that Prime Minister urges them to accelerate the implementation of the project. But Armen Amiryan wasn’t able to note concrete terms when it will be implemented.
