In an interview with HAY DZAYN, People's Artist of the Republic of Armenia, Professor Tovmas Poghosyan touched upon the issue of changing the anthem, noting that in his opinion the Armenian national anthem should be changed. "It would be right to restore Aram Khachatryan's anthem with some edited words".

Composer Daniel Erazhisht (Musician) also agrees to change the anthem, thinking that Aram Khachatryan's anthem should be restored with some edition of the lyrics. "It is necessary to change the lyrics in accordance with our days. The roots of that hymn are deep, they are reaching Nerses Shnorhali. Aram Khachatryan's anthem includes Western Armenia and Eastern Armenia, both past and present, spiritual and secular, there is no other synthesis of all ot once in any other anthem".

It should be noted that the head of the Union of Composers of Armenia Aram Satyan also mentioned that the Union and all the composers favor this change and added that Aram Khachatryan's work is written on a permanent basis and has a spiritual importance for the state.
