The President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron sent a congratulatory message to the President of the Republic Armen Sarkissian on the Independence Day of Armenia.
The message particularly says:
"Mr. President, dear Armen,
On the occasion of the Independence Day of the Republic of Armenia, I sent to you, as well as to the Armenian people, my best wishes for happiness, prosperity, and success.
I appreciate the significant path of building a modern and democratic state that the Armenian people have taken since gaining independence exactly thirty years ago. Thus, having overcome several trials, your country has managed to strengthen the activities of the institutions.
France and Armenia are linked with a privileged relationship deeply rooted in history. These close and trusting friendly relations continue today in all spheres. I hope that this connection, which is the richness of our bilateral relations, will deepen in the various areas of cooperation, such as culture, education, healthcare, or economy.
France wants to play a role in bringing peace to the region, and it is in that spirit that it stands by Armenia to help it overcome the challenges it faces a year after the bloody war in Nagorno-Karabakh. In this regard, France will be particularly committed to preserving the region's rich cultural heritage, which reflects the uniqueness and richness of the South Caucasus.
Finally, we will spare no effort to find a lasting solution to the conflict within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs to stabilize the situation in the South Caucasus in favour of regional development and prosperity. It also implies the resumption of the dialogue between Armenia and Azerbaijan under the auspices of the Minsk Group Co-Chairs. France, as a co-chairing country, is ready to support this issue.
On this symbolic occasion, reaffirming my best wishes, please accept the deep assurance of my respect."
