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

Dear compatriots,

I congratulate us all on the occasion of Nagorno Karabakh Independence Day.

The last eighteen years reaffirmed the unambiguousness of the historic decision adopted in 1991. Today, the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh is an established state with its structures, army and most importantly, with the citizens who are the masters of their own destiny.

Today, for us and for the international community Artsakh is a modern republic which embodies the ideals of freedom, sovereignty and democracy, and which despite all the objective as well as artificially created hindrances and hardships is progressing, developing its economy and culture, and defending peace.

The Republic of Armenia and the entire Armenian nation all these years have been and will continue to be Artsakh’s sturdy supporters. I assure all the citizens of Artsakh and all Armenians that the peaceful resolution to the NK conflict will be first and foremost based on the consent and free will of the people of Artsakh.

Dear people of Artsakh,
We owe this holiday first of all to those who stepped into immortality putting their lives on the altar of motherland and freedom. Bowing to their memory, I once again congratulate you with this holiday and wish you all well being, happiness and valor.
