“We live with the correct ideology, which should provide Armenians with the opportunity to live and build the future correctly. Khachkars for us are a symbol of the power of faith, and this height is a place of worship for saints. All Armenians have a striving for peace, freedom, and faith. If we can believe and master this truth, we will receive the key that will lead us to the Kingdom of God.
