    I am deeply shocked and confused of these last events in Paris, because I have been visiting France for so many years as an artist. France is such a multicultural country and French government is making its best efforts to ensure that all cultures would feel at home in France, giving opportunities to develop and cherish their own national cultures and provide a place for living to their families. However, unfortunately there are radicals, who cannot value all those values. I understand that and I have felt it on my parents and grandparents, who have been victims of a genocide and France was one of the first countries in Europe who recognised Armenian genocide. With great pain this event has re-surfaced all these old memories of how my own compatriots were a subject to terror and genocide. I am with all my thoughts and feeling with the French nation. My dearest nation, who I regard highly for it's culture and democracy. We will conquer the wrongdoers together. I pay respect to humanism and French nation and republic. I'm sending my great love and thoughts to French nation. Respectfully, Aragats G. Kalatshjan Artist
