YEREVAN — The delegation of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly headed by its President Sergey Naryshkin, Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of Russia has arrived in Armenia for the sitting of the CSTO PA.

Upon their arrival in Armenia, members of the delegation, accompanied by Deputy Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Edward Sharmazanov, visited the Tsitsernakaberd Memorial to pay tribute to the memory of the 1.5 million innocent victims of the Armenian Genocide.

“I visit Tsitsernakaberd Memorial every time I arrive in Armenia,” Sergey Naryshkin said.

“It’s necessary to remember what happened 100 years ago to exclude reoccurrence of such tragedies in the future. Every year the Russian State Duma commemorates the Armenian Genocide and adopts corresponding statements, expressing our condolences and our stance on the tragic events of 1915,” Sergey Naryshkin noted.
