Ms. Arpine Aleksanyan and Ms. Sona Baloyan from Yerevan, from “Matenadaran” Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, were supported with the travel grant to visit Istanbul, Turkey for meetings with the Armenian Patriarchate, Armenian high schools, foundations and publishing houses to discuss possibilities of further collaboration on preserving the Armenian culture.

Arpine Aleksanyan:”Since our Two nations have many things in common, they need to find ways to work together on a professional level. The both sides will benefit from good relationships and joint projects.”

Sona Baloyan:”Being neighbours, we have a lot of common things to work on and study. I think it is possible for our two nations to work together and see the future in peace.”
