Arayik Harutyunyan, Chief of Staff of the Prime Minister, Chairman of the Jubilee Committee for the 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Charles Aznavour, gave a speech at the event, in which he specifically stated:

“Honorable Mr. President,
Your Excellencies Ambassadors,
Dear representatives of Aznavour’s family,
Dear attendees,

Today, at the residence of the President of the Republic of Armenia, we have consolidated around the great Armenian, Charles Aznavour (aka Vaghinag Aznavourian), whose 100th anniversary will be celebrated not only in his two homelands, France and Armenia, but also worldwide.

Born in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district of Paris, in the family of Armenian immigrants Misha and Knar Aznavouryans, the legend of chanson served his two homelands, France and Armenia, equally and with great dedication, becoming a permanent link bridging our two countries. Charles Aznavour always said: “I am one hundred percent French and one hundred percent Armenian.” We can add: He was also one hundred percent a citizen of the world.
