STEPANAKERT—Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) President Bako Sahakyan sent on Thursday a congratulatory letter to the newly elected U.S. President Donald Trump, according to the Artsakh presidential press service.

The letter can be read below.

“Your Excellency,

On behalf of the people and authorities of Artsakh and myself personally, I cordially congratulate you on being elected as the 45th President of the United States.

The USA is considered a fraternal country in Artsakh, a state which a home to one of the biggest segments of the Armenian Diaspora.

It has been a quarter of a century since our people struggled for their freedom and independence building a democratic and sovereign state, civil society – values that are basic and fundamental for the Americans too.

The United States, being among the co-chair countries of the OSCE Minsk Group, plays a substantial role in peaceful and just settlement of the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict. I am confident that during your presidency, America will carry on this significant mission further on contributing to the maintenance and reinforcement of peace and stability in our region.

I once again congratulate you and the whole people of the United States, wishing peace, prosperity, success and all the best.”

    IT WAS RIGHT THING FOR KARABAKH (ARTSAKH) PRESIDENT MR. BAKO SAHAKYAN TO CONGRATULATE. NEW PRESIDENT MR TRUMP.
    REGRETFULLY SOME ARMENIANS ORGANIZATIONS UNDER INFLUENCE OF BIAS MEDIA MAKE WRONG DECISION TO STAY NEUTRAL.

    Let’s hope he (the President-elect) cleans house; starting with the State Dept., Johns Kirby and Warlick, and all their minions first.

    Time magazine recently reported on candidate Trump’s conflicts of interest. One of them involved Trump allowing a building in Azerbaijan to use his name on a building there. Should Armenia and Azerbaijan get into a war, President Trump will have to decide whether to forfeit his financial income from the building if he supports the Armenian position. Hmmm….

    Oh wait! He’s going to have a blind trust. Maybe he’ll forget that he makes money there. Then Armenia might have an ally in Trump.
