“Nineteen years ago on this day, the Supreme Council of Armenia adopted the Declaration of Independence, which became a historic and guiding document for the future of our country,” said the president.
“It embodied the will of the people, who went through immense suffering, who paved their way in history with the cross, letters and sweat, and when necessary – also with the sword. It embodied the resolve of the people to build their own country on their own land,” added the president.
“With this document, which heralded the news of the political freedom of the people of Armenia, we asserted our ascent, which our Republic and our people have been pursuing steadfastly all these years, remaining faithful to the principles enshrined in the Declaration. I wholeheartedly congratulate us all on the Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and wish you all the best,” concluded Sarkisian.
