So today, I want to talk about the Armenian population in the world. I hope you will find helpful information about Armenia and the Armenian diaspora worldwide.
I recently had the pleasure of traveling to Yerevan, Armenia. It captured my heart and I already want to go back! The beauty of the country, the love, compassion and warmth of the people and their culture are truly amazing.
I want to share with you my thoughts about the Armenian people, who have lived in many countries around the world since the formation of the Armenian state thousands of years ago. Not all countries have people of Armenian origin. But there are a lot of Armenians in the world and this article will help you find them.
The word Armenia was used first time in a historical record called Urartu Cuneiform. Urartu means “a country” in the Sumerian language, while Cuneiform descends from Akkadian Kina-Sum (“great script”). It was a writing system used to write various languages starting from 3200 BC. The term “Armenia” derives from Arme/Armin- land meaning “highlands” where people inhabit (the highest geographical level). The Armenians – a linguistically and culturally unique nation – are comprised of three groups: residents of Armenia (including ethnic minorities), those residing in the adjoining territories, and those residing in diaspora all over the world. In total, there are about 8 million Armenians residing both within and beyond their ancestral homeland.
I have many friends from different countries, but one of my best friends in Canada is Armenian. I admire this culture a lot and would like to talk about the Armenian population in the world and their culture.
The Armenian population in the world and their culture. Armenians are considered to be the direct descendants of Haik, who was the most significant person in Armenian history after whom people named themselves and their land.
The Armenian population consists of more than 10 million people. Most of them live in Armenia, but some live in Russia and the west of Iran. More than 60% of the majority of Armenians (in Armenia) are independent, their culture is non-European, non-Oriental, and it’s quite unique.
Armenia is a country located in the Transcaucasia region of Asia. It was part of Ancient Armenia, in the 7th to 5th centuries BC. The Armenians were migrated to many places in the world, particularly to the United States, Canada and Brazil.
The Armenian population in the world: Armenians are one of the oldest peoples inhabiting Europe, the Caucasus, and Asia Minor, with an uninterrupted history of more than 4000 years. Their territory is almost completely surrounded by those of other nations. The cry “Hail to the Lord,” uttered in Aramaic, was heard as far away as India and China. The former land of Urartu (Ararat) stretched from Van to the Mediterranean, including all lands between Euphrates and Araxes rivers.
Every second country in the world hosts the Armenian population. There is an area called “Little Armenia” in many cities, including Paris. In the Middle East, Turkey and Syria still deny the Armenian genocide. Armenians had their own kingdom from 190 BCE to 428 CE. They created numerous inventions like the wine press, as well as a script for Armenian called “Mets sign.”
