Today, Armenian lavash has been recognized by UNESCO and added to the representative list of Intangible Cultural Heritage as historically Armenian cultural heritage.
The Armenians have been baking lavash since time immemorial. Armenian historians would write about lavash, and it was mentioned even in pre-Christian times. And Turks were a nomadic people, without any history or homeland.
So neither Kurds nor Turks could have lavash. Even in Armenia lavash was not baked everywhere because tonirs were built in the fields,” Ms Stepanayn said.
“If the world had some more knowledge, it would know the history of lavash. Lavash is our national bread,” she added.
