Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan today addressed a conference entitled “Armenia-25; The World and Women” organized by the Women’s Council of the Republican Party of Armenia.
Sargsyan, who also serves as president of the party, told conference participants that the ruling Republic Party was “a conservative party that wants to preserve and strengthen our traditional family that has always been the invincible guarantor of the Armenian people’s historic existence.”
Sargsyan continued that the woman in Armenian history has always occupied her firm and steadfast place.
“Motherhood, the place and role of the mother in the Armenian family, has always been regarded as a source of life and the holiest of holies,” Sargsyan said.
The Armenian president said that the role and contribution of women is equally important in society.
“We are proud of the achievements of Armenia’s women in all sectors of life, from culture to education and the army, from business to the health field,” Sargsyan said.
The Armenian president, summarizing his party’s firm principle regarding women in society, noted: “Our society is comprised of established women and men. A woman, a successful woman, must always be represented alongside a successful man. We encourage this. It’s our principled position.”
