President Bako Sahakyan congratulated the people of the Nagrono Karabakh Republic on the Artsakh Revival Day on Saturday, February 20.
“Indeed, 28 years ago Artsakh was revived; so was its freedom-loving spirit, patriotic soul, self-efficacy and belief in the future. It was a struggle based on legal, moral and universal human values, a nationwide movement, which consolidated the Armenians worldwide, uniting them around the single idea of living a free and independent life on their historic homeland. This being the legitimate aspiration of any nation, we paid a price to secure our right to freedom,” Sahakyan said.
Born and raised in the Artsakh Republic, today’s young generation continues the work of the 1988 devotees, he stressed.
“They have mastered the instructions to selflessly serve the country and its people, ready to do their utmost to further develop and strengthen Artsakh, reinforce its defense capability and ensure its security,” the President concluded.
