YEREVAN, April 22. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited earlier on Friday the Tsitsernakaberd Armenian Genocide memorial complex.
He examined the museum exposition, left a note in the book for official delegations and then laid a wreath at the eternal flame. "Thank you for preserving this memory so that the Armenian people’s tragedy is never forgotten," the minister’s note says.
Russia’s top diplomat also watered the fir tree in the alley of the memorial complex planted by him in 2007.
After the ceremony Lavrov will hold talks with his Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian and meet with President Serzh Sargsyan.
