After introducing the vocation and mission of the Catholicosate of Cilicia and the current challenges in Lebanon, His Holiness Aram I spoke of the100th Anniversary commemorations of the Armenian Genocide. He also discussed the Christian presence in the Middle East and the strong need to strengthen cooperation between Churches in Europe and the Middle East. The Catholicos then offered the delegates a folder with his writings and speeches on the Armenian Genocide.
