President Armen Sarkissian congratulated the President of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay
President of the Republic Armen Sarkissian sent a congratulatory message to the President of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay Luis Alberto Lacalle Pou, on his birthday.
"The centennial close friendship between the peoples of Armenia and Uruguay dates back to the moment when Uruguay welcomed the Armenian refugees who escaped the Armenian Genocide. The fraternal ties between the two peoples are rooted in the immigration of thousands of Armenians, who played a significant role in the social and economic development of the country. Uruguay was the first in the world to recognize the Armenian Genocide and make history.
The strong partnership relations between our countries have always been marked by mutual trust and a sincere desire to deepen them.
Our compatriots, living in Uruguay, strongly promote the Armenian-Uruguayan interactions, and make their invaluable contributions to strengthen and maintain the friendship between our peoples," says President Sarkissian in his message.
