President Armen Sarkissian congratulated President of Artsakh Bako Sahakian on the occasion of Artsakh’s Referendum on Independence and Constitution Day
Distinguished Mr. President,
I congratulate you on the occasion of a triple holiday celebrated in the Republic of Artsakh – Referendum on Independence, Constitution and International Day of Protection of Human Rights.
While the triple holiday in May is the epitome of military victories, the December triple holiday is the legal expression of those victories since December 10, 1991. It is a testimony of the irreversible processes of independent statehood and democratization.
Independence of Artsakh is a part of the pan-national dream, adoption of the Constitution of Artsakh is the legal warranty of that dream. Today, our collective will has another field for application: empowerment and prosperity of our free and independent Fatherland – Armenia and Artsakh.
We will continue to walk down this road together, hand in hand because it is the road of success and victory.
I wish you and all people of Artsakh peace and all the best.
