NA CHAIRMAN: CHESS – ART AND SPORT

Armenian chess players who became Olympic Champions have been hosted in the National Assembly of Armenia, reported the public relations department of the NA. The Chairman of the NA Hovik Abrahamyan greeted the guests and said that due to their performance in Dresden Armenian chess players have proved that Armenia is a big chess country and that they have their own place in the world chess.

To say that every Armenian loves playing chess and they do play, is not quite right. Although experts still dispute whether chess is an art or a sport, it is right to say that chess is both – an art and a sport, says the Chairman.

The Chairman wished Armenian chess players all the best and successes in their future performances.
