“I would like to note with satisfaction that Artsakh has become a mature state unit which has democratic institutions, elected parliament and president as well as people who are not only proud to be Artsakhians but are also proud to have a state. I am confident that the democratically elected authorities of Artsakh, together with people, have both life experience, pride, courage and, certainly, wisdom to solve their internal issues. We all – Armenia and our entire nation, stand as one by Artsakh because challenges still persist. They are as sizeable, probably today even more sizeable than ever. Thus, stability in Artsakh is very important for all of us.”
