NEW YORK — On Tuesday, August 4, a farewell reception was held at the Diocesan Center in honor of Armen Martirossian, Armenia’s ambassador to the United Nations, who will soon become Armenia’s ambassador to Germany.
Organized by the Eastern Diocese and the Fund for Armenian Relief, the evening was attended by some 100 people, who gathered to thank Martirossian for his six years of service at the UN and to wish him success in his new position.
Opening the evening’s program, Diocesan Vicar the Very Rev. Haigazoun Najarian spoke about Martirossian’s deep faith and close connection to the Armenian Church.
Najarian said that Martirossian will be remembered in New York’s Armenian community, just as the ambassador will cherish the memories of his time here.
