Manvel Sargsyan: The rumors about closing of the Armenian Centre for National and International Studies (ACNIS) are untimely.

Yerevan. The rumors about closing of the ACNIS are untimely, the head of the Centre, Manvel Sargsyan, told Arminfo

correspondent.

According to Zhamanak daily, ACNIS will be closed in the near future as there is no financing.

"Our Centre has been working for 20 years. We registered many achievement over that period of time and it would be wrong to

close it. We really have financial problems, as Trustees Council of our foundation in the USA has practically stopped financing of the

ACNIS referring to lack of funds. As a result, our experts have already left the Centre and only technical workers remained", - Sargsyan

said.

Sargsyan assures that the founder of the Centre, Raffi Hovannisian, does his best to preserve the Center and tries to settle the

financial problems. "To be short, at present we are reorganizing ACNIS, which will undoubtedly go on functioning", - Sargsyan

concluded.

ACNIS was founded in 1994.
