Lebanon will issue commemorative stamps with the picture of the Genocide Monument to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
On Friday 6 December 2013, Nicolas Sahnawi, Lebanon’s Minister of Telecommunications visited His Holiness Aram I, the Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia.
During the visit, His Holiness spoke of the Genocide and explained the meaning of the monument erected in 1965 commemorating its 50th anniversary.
Catholicos Aram I then expressed his gratitude to the people of Lebanon for their solidarity at the time and proposed that the Ministry of Telecommunications issue commemorative stamps with the picture of the Genocide Monument.
The Minister welcomed the proposal and promised to implement the project at the beginning of 2014.
