An exhibition titled “Armenia: The secret of stones” was opened at the foyer of the hall of sessions of the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers. The solemn opening ceremony was attended by the Secretary General of the Council of Europe, PACE President, Chairman of the European Court of Human Rights, heads of delegation of CoE member states.
“Armenia is a country of high mountains, and it’s natural that the stone has turned into the language of art. It’s primarily through architecture that Armenia has managed to express its creative spirit,” Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said at the opening ceremony.
The Minister said it has developed into an indispensable part of world culture. “We are glad to present this exhibition within the framework of Armenia’s presidency of the Committee of Ministers,” Edward Nalbandian said.
