Lettet og condolences of President Serzh Sargsyan on the occasion of passing away of Yuri Barsegov

I learned with sorrow the news on passing away of the well-known lawyer and diplomat Yuri Barsegov.

Yuri Barsegov was a scientist of international acclaim who was able to see the inescapable influence of the past over the future world order and whose unimpeachable dedication became the way of life, while the life itself became a singular record of patriotism and struggle for the restitution of historic justice.

The contribution of this son of the Armenian nation in the studies of the legal and political aspects of the Armenian Genocide and promotion of its international legal judgment is considerable. This gratifying work was aimed at the elimination of crimes against humanity. His efforts directed at the resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh problem are also appreciable.

I express my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Yuri Barsegov.
