Sargsyan praises Belarus for its role in promoting CIS cooperation

MINSK, 10 October (BelTA) – Belarus, during its out-of-turn chairmanship in the CIS, continued playing an important role in the strengthening of cooperation between the CIS member states, Armenia President Serzh Sargsyan said at the CIS Heads of State Council meeting in Minsk on 10 October, BelTA has learned.

The Armenian President emphasized the importance of the address in connection with the 70th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. “Bloody lessons of the two world wars of the 20th century should be remembered by the future generations as the lessons of heroism of our peoples. The events planned to celebrate the day should underline the importance of counteracting the attempts to revise the history,” he said.

The President of Armenia believes it is vital to bring up the young generation in the spirit of tolerance and interethnic concord. He condemned the bombing of one of the temples of the Armenian Apostolic Church by the Islamic State. Such things cannot fit in the philosophy of many religions, including Islam, Serzh Sargsyan noted.

He believes that cooperation in the CIS should be aimed at preventing possible conflicts and regulating the current ones by peaceful methods.
