For Tavitian the benefactor the vision of an advanced and developed Armenia was a priority: President sent condolences on the demise of Aso Tavitian

President Armen Sarkissian sent condolences on the demise of Aso Tavitian.

“I learned with great pain the news on the demise of the Founding President of the Tavitian Foundation, benefactor, my good friend Aso Tavitian.

Aso Tavitian was a special bridge linking the Fatherland and Diaspora. He was not born in Armenia, never lived in Armenia but always lived by Armenia, visiting it many times and supporting the Fatherland in many ways.

For Tavitian the benefactor, the vision of an advanced and developed Armenia was a priority which he was calling to life through different projects, particularly by funding educational programs. Through the assistance of the Tavitian Foundation multiple young Armenians were educated and trained at the prestigious American universities, such as the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

During our numerous meetings, including on various prestigious international platforms, Aso Tavitian always spoke of the necessity to help Armenia and our people in every possible way. He always viewed the Fatherland and Diaspora as one soul and one body.

I send condolences and words of comfort to the family of Aso Tavitian, his relatives and friends.”
