President Sargsyan sent a congratulatory message to Baroness Margaret Thatcher on the occasion of her jubilee

The message states:

“Dear Baroness,

Please accept my sincere congratulations and best wishes on your birthday.
Your tenure at 10 Downing Street acquired prominence not only as the longest in Great Britain’s history of 20th century, but also thanks to Your astuteness and conation made it possible to ease relations within the bipolar world. You became one of the most influential individuals working toward the enforcement of international peace, stability and universal progress.

It would be remiss of me not to take this opportunity to once again say words of appreciation for Your memorable material and moral assistance at the most calamitous times – the earthquake in Armenia in 1988. We recall warmly Your visit to our country in June 1990, which was the first and so far the only visit of Great Britain’s Prime Minister to Armenia. Please be assured, Madam, that the school named after Lord Byron, built with the assistance of the people and government of the UK and inaugurated by You, became a symbolic cornerstone for the dissemination of the British culture in Armenia and heralded start of the relations between the newly independent Armenia and Great Britain.

I am hopeful that thanks to the efforts of the governments and peoples of our two countries, the Armenian-British relations will continue to deepen and expand for the benefit of our countries and peoples.

Please accept, Lady Thatcher, the assurances of my highest esteem.”
