YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)– "We’ve given birth to a child and–as every parent–ought to do our best to raise it to be robust–honest and sincere," the newly born Noratert daily said in its first issue editorial. The first issue of the paper was published in Yerevan on June 23.
The sponsor of the new daily is the International Independent Association–21st Century headed by Arkady Vardanian. The Association is also the sponsor of another newspaper–the Russian-language "Novoye Vremya" daily–as well as the Russian-language "Literaturnaya Armenia" magazine.
The editor of Noratert is Mher Davoyan–who is known to have been the editor-in-chief of the "Munetik" weekly published in Armenia in 1990-1993.
