Dear Mr. Aznavour!

Dear chanson!

I warmly congratulate you on your 85th birthday!

Your life and activity serve a vivid example for all of us, who try to
enter into the sphere of song and music, stage art and cinema. Your
unique poetic talent has given deep meaning and breath to your
melodies.

Being an honest son of Armenian and French peoples you have built a
bridge of mutual trust between our two countries. Your world fame is
also for Armenia, as you used to talk about your being Armenian always
with pride. At the same time your talent and work are not enclosed by
borders of any country and reach to all your fans of the whole world.

I warmly congratulate you once again on the day of your jubilee and
wish you health, strength and power, happiness and new successes.
