Welcoming the ambassadors, the minister of MESCS Zhanna Andreasyan noted. "We value the experience of cooperation with Francophone countries that we have accumulated during the years of Armenia's presidency of the International Organization of Francophonie. During that time, solid foundations have been created to carry out our future work more systematically and efficiently. It must be stated with certainty that French and Francophone values are one indivisible whole."
The minister informed that several events in French are planned in all educational institutions of the Republic of Armenia on the occasion of the National Day of France and the International Day of Francophonie, which, according to Zhanna Andreasyan, contributes to the spread of Francophone culture and values and the development of the language, as well as provides an opportunity for students to cooperate in this framework. And demonstrate their language abilities and skills.

Students of the Hayordyats Tan choir and Gyumri Symphony Orchestra will perform. French music will be played. A themed mosaic and a feast of French national cuisine are also planned. According to the minister's observation, that very school can become the planned francophone school in Gyumri.
The Ambassador of Switzerland thanked for the reception and noted that the years when Armenia assumed the presidency of the International Organization of Francophonie in 2018-2022, in a period full of challenges, deserve high praise.
The ambassadors presented the two-month planned events, which will be implemented in different formats and institutions.
