Armenian President salutes Macron’s decision on pantheonization of Missak Manouchian

Armenian President Vahagn Khachaturyan has saluted the decision on pantheonization of French Resistance hero Missak Manouchian.

” I salute the historic decision by Emmanuel Macron on the pantheonization of Missak Manouchian. This survivor of the Armenian genocide, who became French through the bloodshed, embodies the ultimate sacrifice of all the Armenians who died for France in the name of its freedom and its values,” President Khachaturyan said in a Twitter post.

Missak Manouchian, an Armenian genocide survivor who went on to become a French Resistance hero, will enter France’s Panthéon mausoleum of revered historical figures next year, President Emmanuel Macron announced in a statement Sunday.
