As part of the visit to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Armenian
President Serzh Sargsyan had a meeting with representatives of the
local Armenian community.

Speaking at the reception, President Sargsyan said "2015 is going to
be a year of serious political initiatives and achievements for the
Armenia-Artsakh-Diaspora trinity."

The President said Armenia can flourish only through coordination of
the capacities of all parties. He added that Jordan became one of the
coasts of salvation, where Armenian Genocide survivors found refuge.

President Sargsyan earlier visited the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ
on the bank of the Jordan River. The President toured the Christian
sanctuary and made a note in the book of honorary guests. "The human
spirit prevails in Al-Maghtas, the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ,
where one becomes a part of universe, realizing the inevitability of
eternity. Baptism epitomizes novelty, tolerance and reviving kindness.

I think that this is the very place which can change one's outlook. I
am grateful that Jordan takes care of this world-renowned sanctuary,
thereby affirming its commitment to dialogue among civilizations. I
would like to thank Jordanian authorities and Jordanians for giving
me the opportunity to visit this sanctuary," wrote President Serzh
Sargsyan.

The Armenian President, accompanied by the Armenian Patriarch of
Jerusalem, the Jordanian Religious Leader, the Secretary-General of
the Jordanian Prelacy and the National Association of Local Councils,
representatives of the Armenian community and the members of the
presidential delegation, visited Saint Karapet Church.
