Below are some of his selected works.

"The story of the people of Artsakh is littered with ancient, almost indecipherable memories; it is punctuated with cries of mourning; it reeks with the smoke of ancient battles.

The story takes thousands of years to tell; to tell the story fully would take longer than the lives of all the grandmothers and grandfathers since ancient times.

It is a story so filled with wonder and sadness, you'd almost think the Armenians developed their alphabet simply in order to write it down: a unique story, uniquely recorded.

All Armenians, especially those in Artsakh, know the importance of writing things down; after all, some of the stories which must be told are so painful they are hard to speak aloud, and so they must be written down.

The stories must survive."
