THE 6 MOST ANCIENT COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD: ARMENIA AMONG THEM

15:42, 25 Dec 2014

The first states emerged about 6,000 years ago, but not all of them
have survived. Some disappeared forever, others have only their name
left. A Russian website presents the six modern countries that have
maintained links with the Ancient World. These include Armenia, Iran,
China, Greece, Egypt and Japan.

"The history of Armenians statehood counts 2,500 years, but its roots
should be looked for even deeper, in the Kingdom of Arme-Shupria
(12th century BC), which, according to historian Boris Piatrovsky,
grew into a Scythian-Armenian union in the 7-6th centuries BC,"
the russian7.ru website reminds.

According to the report, Ancient Armenia was a conglomerate of
kingdoms and states, which existed simultaneously or successes each
other. The website notes that the term "Armenia" was first mentioned
in the Behistun inscription (521 BC) of the King of Persia, Darius I,
who used the name to describe the Persian satrapy on the territory
of the disappeared Kingdom of Urartu.

The Kingdom of Ararat that was later formed in the valley of Araks
Ruver served as a basis for three others - Sofena, Lesser Armenia and
Great Armenia. Starting from 3rd century BC the center of the political
and cultural life of the Armenian nation moved to the Ararat Valley.
