On behalf of the Artsakh people, authorities and personally myself I extend my cordial congratulations to You on the Day of the Army.
The victorious Armenian Army is our nation's pride, the main guarantor of our freedom and security, one of the key factors of maintaining peace and stability in the region.
Glory and honor to our heroic army, all our martyrs who have sacrificed their lives for the freedom of our homeland, brave soldiers whose unshakable will, courage and selflessness keep the borders of our native country firm!
On the occasion of this cherished holiday I once again congratulate You and our whole people wishing peace, greatest success and new victories to our Motherland and the Armenian Army".
