BERLIN — Gyumri has good reason to celebrate. One of its most prominent sons has been chosen as the honorary consul of Germany and this will bring relations between the two countries, on the political, economic and cultural level to new levels.
The official ceremony took place on January 26, when the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany Matthias Kiesler introduced the newly appointed honorary consul, Alexan Ter-Minasyan, to a large group of well-wishers. Handing him the Consular License of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he announced the launch of the consulate in Gyumri.
