According to her, last year humanitarian aid was pushed to the first place, but this year new, more complete projects are expected to be implemented. "The epidemic has not receded yet, but we want to promote the spread of Lithuanian culture, history and literature in Armenia through something symbolic. To achieve this goal, we have launched a new initiative today, in the framework of which we are donating books by Lithuanian authors. Our event has started in the National Assembly and at YSU, for which we are very happy. "
During the meeting the ways of establishing cooperation between YSU and Lithuanian universities were discussed.
According to Alexander Margarov, one of the effective ways is the exchange programs organized through the "Erasmus +" program, within the framework of which Armenian-Lithuanian students, as well as lecturers, can make mutual visits.
