President Armen Sarkissian sent a letter of condolences on the death of Robert Dole
President of the Republic Armen Sarkissian sent a letter of condolences to Elizabeth Dole on the death of her husband, the former US Senator and presidential candidate Robert Dole.
The letter of condolence says in particular:
"Dear Mrs. Dole,
I am saddened to learn about the death of your husband, the famous politician Robert Dole. America lost its worthy son and soldier, and the Armenian people, their great loyal friend, who was closely connected with us, Armenians, was always by our side, especially in times of trial and difficulty.
After the devastating earthquake of 1988, Robert Dole visited Armenia and played an indisputable role in the organization of the US humanitarian assistance to our country. His efforts to recognize the Armenian Genocide are also invaluable.
Please accept the assurances of my highest consideration. The memory of Mr. Dole will always be bright in our hearts."
