In an interview with Aysor.am, pastor of Karvachar region, Abbot of Dadivank Monastery, Priest Hovhannes Hovhannisyan said Artsakh won’t be giving Dadivank Monastery to the Turks.
“President of the Republic of Artsakh Arayik Haroutyunyan just called me on the phone and told me not to touch the crosses at Dadivank Monastery since Artsakh won’t be giving Dadivank Monastery to the Turks,” he stated.
Asked how Dadivank Monastery will be maintained, Father Hovhannes didn’t go into detail and only emphasized that God is first and foremost saving Dadivank Monastery.
“I was waiting for a miracle to happen since I wanted to remove the cross-stones that our ancestors have carved and placed here 800 years ago. I was even afraid of being punished for that. I have been afraid and have been waiting for a miracle for the past two days,” the pastor concluded.
