Dear Compatriots,

 

I would like to congratulate on the Day of Armenian Army. It is not only a good opportunity to express our gratitude and congratulations to our servicemen, soldiers, officers and generals but also to recall the glorious records of the Artsakh war, protection of the borders of Armenia, independence and freedom of our country, each episode of which is a unique act of pride and heroism.

The Armenian Army is the achievement of the fight and combined efforts of our people and each new success of the armed forces sums up our national aspirations and quest for a democratic and rule of law state.

This day has become festive at the expense of the lives of our sons. Eternal glory to our courageous sons who sacrificed their lives to their Motherland.

This day is a festive day for our soldiers and officers thanks to whom our borders are impregnable. I wish vigour and peaceful service to all our servicemen.

God bless you.

Honorable Mr Sahakyan,

 

On behalf of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia, we congratulate you on the Day of Human Rights, the Day of Independence Referendum and Constitution Day of the Artsakh Republic.

This is a great opportunity to recall and highlight once more the most important achievements of the Artsakh Republic since the independence referendum and to state that today the country has truly been established as a robust democratic state grounded on the greater understanding and respect for the importance of fundamental human rights and freedoms and rule of law.

Adoption of the Constitution has certainly played a key role in the establishment of statehood and self-determination of Artsakh as a basis for the formation of a number of constitutional legal institutions of the country, and, therefore, it is impossible to overestimate today's guidance and their triple importance for the Republic of Artsakh.

We wish you and the Armenian people of Artsakh blue skies, secure borders, immense courage and fortitude to preserve and strengthen the democratic foundations and rule of law.
