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.

 

HRAYR TOVMASYAN

President of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Armenia
