It’s an honor because you give us confidence and peace of mind which are necessary; our country is heading forward and will be heading more confidently, and great changes can happen in the country. All these would not be possible unless you stand strong on our borders. I, as the President of Armenia, as an ordinary citizen am confident that the future of our country is in strong hands.
The life of each Armenian soldier is precious to us, as precious as the Fatherland itself. Thus, stay strong, guard our borders, and most importantly, safeguard each other, guys,” President said to the troops.
