NKR President congratulated Barack Obama on US Independence Day

PanARMENIAN.Net - On 4 July, NKR President Bako Sahakyan sent a congratulatory letter to US President Barack Obama in connection with US Independence Day.  

NKR President said in his letter, "On behalf of the people and Government of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic, Artsakh, I am writing to congratulate you and the American people on occasion of the United States' Independence Day.

Your nation saw many ordeals on the path to independence. Outstanding persistence and patriotism allowed the American people overcome the severe challenges and become a great democracy in the world.

The formidable American spirit of freedom has motivated many nations, including Artsakh, to achieve its long-dreamed objectives of national liberation and prosperity. We defended our right to live in freedom, under the government of our own choosing, against Azerbaijan's attempt to undermine our basic right to exist.

The people of Artsakh are thankful to the American nation for the ongoing humanitarian assistance, which helps to rebuild our lives and restore our economy shattered by a devastating conflict. Further, we appreciate the ongoing efforts of your Administration to promote a durable peace and stability in the South Caucasus and to bring about a fair and viable settlement to the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict.

As we celebrate the spirit of freedom on this Day, I am confident that our shared values of peace and prosperity will lead to mutually beneficial, expanded and enriched relations between our two nations," Central Information Department of NKR President's Office reported.
