Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan's Congratulatory Address in connection with the 8 March International Day of Women
On behalf of the Artsakh Republic authorities and myself personally I convey my sincere congratulations to you on the International Day of Women.
8 March is traditionally celebrated as the day of women's rights protection. This day is another occasion for us to acknowledge and evaluate the work you carry out, express our profound gratitude, convey love and render respect. You have always been by our side since the very first day of the Artsakh Liberation Struggle, when we voiced our legitimate claim to the world, went on the warpath for survival and further on, when we needed to strengthen our economy, recover ruined villages and towns, uphold our independent statehood. Today you are bringing up a deserving generation and help make Artsakh prosperous and stronger. While making your inestimable input in all spheres of life, you always remain beautiful and appealing.
I once again congratulate you on this wonderful spring holiday and wish health, happiness and unmatched beauty. In our turn, we will do our best towards ensuring secure and peaceful life for you.
Happy returns of the day, dear women of Artsakh!
