Yezidi Department established within Armenian Union of Writers




Yezidi Department has been established within the Union of Writers of Armenia. The largest minority in Armenia, the Yezidi community will celebrate the 100th anniversary of establishing itself in the country.

The community has always had an opportunity to preserve its national identity. The Public Radio of Armenia broadcasts daily programs in Yezidi. The community publishes a monthly magazine and has a number of organizations functioning in Armenia. There are Yezidi scholars working at the Armenian National Academy of Sciences.

From now on the community will have its Department within the Union of Writers of Armenia.

Head of the Yezidi Programs Department of Public Radio of Armenia Hasan Tamoyan, who has been elected to head the Department, calls its establishment a “truly historic” event.

Hasan Tamoyan congratulated the Yezidis in Armenia and the world on the occasion of this ‘historic day.’
