Dear compatriots,

 

We warmly congratulate you on the Republic Day.

 

It is difficult to overestimate the message of the day, namely, the restoration of the independent statehood, national revival, incorporation of the heroic image of the Armenian nation, who faces the new challenges as a state-organized nation.

As Paruyr Sevak said: "... generations, get to know yourselves beginning from Sardarapat!"

I do strongly believe that this is not only about acknowledging our past, but also about instituting our present and building our future with the awareness and identification of the glorious past. A future that will belong to our people - a vibrant, consolidated and powerful homeland and a strong statehood.

Long live the independent and strong Republic of Armenia!
