Armenian Minister of Education and Science Armen Ashotyan said that
the integration into Europe is not only a priority of Armenia's
foreign policy, but also is an opportunity to get acquainted with
European values.

"We wonder how Armenian school students imagine Europe, the system of
European values and Armenia's integration into Europe," the Minister
told journalists on May 19.

On May 19, Armen Ashotyan, head of the RA parliamentary commission
on European integration Naira Zohrabyan and head of the European
Commission Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Raul de Luzenberger
visited Yerevan secondary school #190 to conduct a demo lesson on
Europe, a joint initiative of the RA Ministry of Education and Science
and the parliamentary committee on European integration.

Mr. Raul de Luzenberger noted for his part that the event will signify
the start of teaching lessons dedicated to Europe in Armenian schools.

"People complain of unawareness about the European Union. This is
a good initiative, which will contribute to Armenia's harmonization
with Europe," he said.
