The letter runs as follows:
"I cordially congratulate You and all our nation on the Independence Day.
The Armenian nation looked forward to that day for centuries. And now it is already 21 years since the independent Armenian has been a reality and occupying its worthy place among other countries embarked on the path of democracy.
September 21 is a holiday for all the Armenians in Armenia, Artsakh and the Diaspora, a day that unites us around a common idea. This is the noble idea of having a powerful and developed homeland. For this very idea the best sons of our people sacrificed their lives. For this very idea every day and every hour we must continue our struggle to implement it. We must struggle together and united, continuously enhancing and increasing our victories and success, our achievements and accomplishments.
I congratulate You and all our compatriots once again and wish peace, welfare and prosperity for the glory of Mother Armenia and its bright future".
