Artsakh’s People Ready to Defend Freedom, Says President

Artsakh President Bako Sahakian


STEPANAKERT—Artsakh’s President Bako Sahakian spoke today during a public celebration of the anniversary of Artsakh’s State Independence Referendum and Constitution Day. Sahakian asserted that the resolve of Artsakh’s people to fight for their freedom is as strong as it has ever been.

“This day has entered into the millennia long history of our nation as the beginning of a new path, which marked the firm determination of the Artsakh Armenians to build a free and independent state as well as a civil society based on democratic principles, universal human and national values,” Sahakian said. “Both the 1991 Independence Referendum and the adoption of the basic law of our country – the Constitution in 2006 once again proved that the Artsakh people are resolute and ready to defend their interests and freedom in accordance with the norms and standards of international law.”

“The path we have chosen is irreversible, as it is just and sanctified by the blood of our martyrs,” Sahakian said, adding that Armenians are obliged to strengthen the statehood of Artsakh and see that it succeeds. “That is the only way towards prosperity for Artsakh, its international recognition and integration with the civilized world,” the President said.

“I once again congratulate all of us on our most significant state holiday and wish peace, health, and all the best,” Sahakian concluded.

    Artsakh is Armenia. God bless the Russo Armenian alliance. Armenia and Russia historically united. According to military analysts Armenia’s army, although numerically inferior, is technologically superior to that of Azerbaijan. Agains turkey, the Russian military base in Armenia is enough of a deterrent to any NATO warmongering hoodlums. Azerbaijan knows this too well. They know if they launch an attack, they will be repulsed with grievous losses. Alyev is a bombastic cunning leader, he is no fool and he does not want to end up like shishkavili in 2008.
