Congratulatory speech of President Bako Sahakyan delivered at a solemn event dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Artsakh Republic’s proclamation

     Dear compatriots,
     Respectable guests,
     Ladies and gentlemen,

    Today we celebrate a glorious nationwide holiday - the 20th anniversary of the Artsakh Republic's proclamation. Indeed, it is a holiday for all Armenians. Throughout centuries our nation has been dreaming to restore its lost statehood, have free and independent homeland and take its worthy place amid the international community. Artsakh has always been the bearer and pioneer of these ideas. There is no coincidence that it symbolizes unity and the rebirth of national self-consciousness of the world spread Armenians.
    On September 2, 1991 the people of Artsakh made a historical decision and publicly announced its firm determination to live freely and independently, determine its own fate on its own soil. And for already 20 years we have been embarked on the course of building democratic, civil and independent society and statehood, the course we consider to be the only correct one.
On this way our people have overcome numerous difficulties, registered great achievements and success.
   In the crucible of the imposed war our defense army was to be born and formed. Today we can proudly say that we have a standing and efficient army, which accomplishes its mission with credit and is always ready to solve any military task. The continuous strengthening of the Artsakh Republic Defense Army and defense capability of our state is among the pivotal goals that have been in the spotlight of the authorities.
    Another important achievement is the Armenia-Artsakh-Diaspora cohesive trinity. During these crucial years hand by hand with our sisters and brothers from Diaspora we could overcome with flying colors the ordeals that fell to our lot, gain victories in the battlefield of the imposed war, restore our destroyed economy and embark on the path of development.
But, still we have a lot to do. There are a numerous plans and goals. Today as before we are resolute and united in realizing our national aspirations, in completing the work of our perished brothers.
    On this holiday we bow down to the memory of the brave sons of the Armenian people who sacrificed their lives for our homeland's bright future. Eternal glory and honor to them!
I want to recall friends of Artsakh and express a deep gratitude to them, to all those who have been with us during the 20 years of independence, helped in bringing our voice to the international community. We are thankful to them for the inestimable support to Artsakh.

   Dear compatriots,
   I express my warmest congratulations on this memorable holiday and wish peace, happiness and all the best.
   Our path is constant and irreversible, our will is unshakeable, our spirit is strong. The best proof of that is the steadily developing Artsakh Republic.
   Long live the Artsakh Republic!
   Long live the Armenia-Artsakh-Diaspora trinity!
   Glory to the heroic Armenian people!

Stepanakert,
September 2, 2011.
