After the awarding ceremony, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan congratulated everyone on the 65th anniversary of the Public TV. "In general, I think that age itself suggests that, at least, many of those present have been accompanied by Public Television throughout their lives. This is why we have a special attitude and special feelings towards the Public Television, because at every stage of our lives we remember ourselves in the role of a viewer of the Public Television.

Today, I'm very pleased to have the opportunity to pay our respects to the staff of Public Television who have played the most important role over the years. And I must hope that the Public Television will continue to appear with prominent, significant figures in the field of television, in the field of journalism, in the field of public discussions in the Republic of Armenia. These figures should also be shaped in the Public Television; they must become important mouthpieces for talking to our society, for dialogue. And this is the role of Public Television in general.”

In conclusion, the Prime Minister also congratulated the Armenian national football team on its victory in Yerevan and expressed hope that the solemn ceremony dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the Public Television will be stronger marked by the successful game of the Armenian national team.
