President Serzh Sargsyan sent a congratulatory message to Zori Balayan on the occasion of his 75th anniversary

The message states:

“Dear Mr. Balayan,

I cordially congratulate you on the occasion of your 75th anniversary.

Our society knows you well – a principled public figure, whose masterful and prolific writings have been reflecting upon the most crucial and urgent matters of the Armenian life for decades. You have not only flagged the most burning issues but also proposed their solutions.

Fight for Karabakh’s freedom, which you joined from day one, has been a turning point not only in our nation’s but in your personal life, and later has been encouraged by your tireless activities. You also became a pivotal figure on a new battlefield of ideology and propaganda: Your publications about Artsakh’s fight for freedom have become a unique chronology of events and can serve as an original documentary source for the historians.

I greatly appreciate and cherish your personality of an enthusiastic figure and intellectual, who is feeling deeply for the problems and concern of our nation. I also admire your dedication and boundless energy which you manifested throughout the voyages of Cilicia and Armenia sailboats.

I wish you excellent health, happiness and new achievements that will undoubtedly come as a results of your restless spirit, talented pen, and inquisitive mind.”
