YEREVAN. – The President of Armenia Serge Sargsyan congratulated the Armenian people with the Independence Day. “Armenia is 21 years old. We have passed through crisis and tortures and did it with honor. We did not lose our human and political image, our orientation, goals and ideas. Despite losses, we achieved serious results during past years-Armenia developed irreversible processes both in the state and public sector. We managed to develop economy within our modest measures and during the blockade. We managed to suppress the appetite of Azerbaijan that is increasing day by day. We managed to establish a democratic institutes in our country, which still require reinforcement. Economy, security and deepening democracy are not just events and good will and efforts of each of us is required for preserving them. Our number one foreign-policy challenge is Artsakh. No matter how difficult it is we are ready to continue talks on Karabakh peace process. The OSCE Minsk Group mediators failed in registering success not because of them or the international format, as often claimed by Azerbaijan, the one that is to be blamed and that regularly torpedoes the process and logic of peace talks. The recent attack was the disgusting event, which led to granting a pardon to amurderer. Both Armenia and the world community clearly expressed their position on this regard. I again congratulate all on the twenty-first anniversary of the Independence of Armenia,” President’s message reads.
