YEREVAN (PanArmenian.net)—The Bulgarian Ambassador to Armenia Todor Staykov handed copies of a large number of documents related to the life and work of Armenian national herores Gen. Antranig and Karekin Njdeh, thus far housed in Bulgaria’s Veliko-Turnovo military and historical archives, to the Armenian history museum and national archive.
“Such documents are part of the history of a nation and we handed over their copies in compliance with the law. I would also like to thank the Armenian Ministry of Culture for its assistance,” Ambassador Staykov said.
Armenia’s Ambassador to Bulgaria Sergei Manaseryan thanked the Bulgarian government or the research that it has carried out.
“2010 will be announced as the ‘Year of Armenia and Bulgaria.’ We are planning to exhibit Matenadaran documents referring to Bulgarians,” said Manaseryan.
National archives director Amatuni Virabyan said that Armenia was also interested in obtaining documents on World War I and the Armenian Genocide that are kept in the Bulgarian archives.
