The President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia
Mr. Tigran Torosyan congratulated the Nagorno Karabakh Republic on
the occasion of the 17th anniversary of its independence:

"Dear compatriots,

I sincerely congratulate you on the occasion of the proclamation of the
17th anniversary of the independence of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic
- one of the dearest holidays of our people. Those years have been
not only years of valour and heroism, but also years of compulsion
of peace to the enemy, establishment of statehood and creation.

Bowing our head before the memory of the martyrs who died for the
establishment of the second state - this real miracle, we should not
forget that we are obliged to continue their work, as the security,
peace and strengthening of two Armenian states and the dignified life
of our heroic people depend on our daily work."
