YSU Academic Secretary Menua Soghomonyan, who welcomed and praised this initiative of the SSS on behalf of YSU administration, was also present at this event.
“Indeed, this initiative is an example of non-formal education and is very welcome. Students not only get a chance to apply the theoretical knowledge on practice, to study this international structure and positions of various countries on many problems, but also develop language skills,” - said Menua Soghomonyan.
Conference co-organizer, the SSS Chairman of the mentioned above faculty Edik Harutyunyan noted that students participate in such events with great interest and enthusiasm.
“Applications for participation were submitted this year by more than 120 students and we selected 33, who today present positions of various states on a definite issue,” - said Edik Harutyunyan and added that mainly they have selected those students, who have not got much experience in such events, as well as first-year students.
