”I am very happy that it is the 3rd time we reveal new talents during this competition-festival. I think that the education and science are two indivisible phenomena. The cultural person must be polite and the polite person must be cultural. This festival is a juicy beat of culture and I hope that everyone can have benefits from that beat”,- said Armen Ashotyan, the minister of Education and Science of the RA.
