On April 13, Armenian Minister of Education and Science Armen Ashotyan
awarded Aaron Ciechanover, a Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry,
with Gold Medal, the highest award of the Ministry.

"Dr. Ciechanover arrived in Armenia to participate in an event
dedicated to the 90th anniversary of Yerevan State Medical University,
as well as to establish cooperation with lecturers and students of
the University," Minister Ashotyan said during the award ceremony.

"I often read about Armenia, but I hadn't had the opportunity to see
it so far. I enjoyed a common walk in Yerevan. Our countries have
many things in common, from the historical point of view. Besides,
we are countries that appreciate peace," the guest said.

On April 14, Dr. Ciechanover is scheduled to meet Armenian Prime
Minister Tigran Sargsyan.
