Congratulatory Address by President Serzh Sargsyan on the occasion of the Nagorno Karabakh Independence Day

Dear Compatriots,

I congratulate you on the occasion of the Nagorno Karabakh Independence Day.
Artsakh’s independence is one of the most brilliant pages of the modern Armenian history, the greatest achievement of our nation. We fully appreciate the price for independence, which was paid by the blood of thousands of the Armenian sons and daughters. We honor their undying glory.

Political independence, which was fought for by our entire nation, is a reality. Moreover, efficient state structures of Artsakh and its Defense Army have become a serious factor in our region. Internal stability, united will and resolute stance of the people of Artsakh and multi-faceted development of the land leave no doubt regarding its free and prosperous future. We are moving forward in Armenia-Artsakh-Spyurq triumvirate – true to our historical choice.

Peaceful resolution of the NK issue can have only one outcome – international recognition of Artsakh’s independence. As for the military solution to the issue, that option, dear people of Artsakh, we defeted long ago. The results of that option are evident for everyone. By your creative work and iron shield of defense you prove every day and every moment that you uphold the sacred legacy and memory of our martyrs.

I once again congratulate all of us on the occasion of this glorious holiday. I wish us all peace, prosperity and new victories, and I wish the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh strength and progress.
