Armenian President participates in Doha Forum 2019 in Qatar

President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian participated in the Doha Forum 2019 at the invitation of Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Presidential Office told Armenpress. The Armenian President delivered remarks at the plenary session of the Forum.

This year the Forum is being held under the slogan “Reimagining Governance in a MultiPolar World”.

In his speech the Armenian President touched upon the development trends of the global world, stating: “The reality is that the world is not only multipolar, but also is much more complex than we expected. In line with the complexities of the multipolar world there are also many issues which remain without response. Uncertainty is much more, than certainty, unpredicted events are taking place more than those which are possible to predict and take respective actions. Why all this is happening? Currently we are at the crossroad of time in some sense and are entering into a new era via the gate of that time”.

Of course, this world is multipolar. And not only the super powers, but also the small and successful countries have their own “strong voice”. I am happy that I am addressing this simple idea or message here in Doha. Qatar is a wonderful example of a small country which is not only beautiful, but also successful. There are many other countries in this gulf with similar success, such as Singapore which has a great impact on the global prospects. Rwanda as well is such a country the president of which is here. Yes, there are small countries, but they have a concrete vision, clearly understand their advantage and make it success. Some countries, such as Qatar, not only use their natural resources, but also serve them for building the future. That future will not be based on the natural resources, but on educat...
