STEPANAKERT (news.am) – A festive reception on occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR/Artsakh) independence took place on behalf of NKR President Bako Sahakian on Thursday.

In his speech, President Sahakian noted that the declaration of the Artsakh Republic’s independence was an important and groundbreaking event, which opened new and glorious pages in the history of Armenian people.

“The establishment of the Artsakh Republic was the common achievement of the Armenian people, one of its biggest victories. Its independence and security are absolute values, which are not subject to speculations and haggling. No return to past exists for us. Any such attempt is fraught with unprecedented consequences and is doomed to failure. We are looking only into the future, which will definitely be bright for our people and state,” Sahakyan stressed in his speech.

The reception was also attended by the Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian, NKR ex-president Arkadi Ghukasian, leader of the Artsakh Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church Pargev Archbishop Martirosian, NKR National Assembly Speaker Ashot Ghoulian, Prime Minister Arayik Harutyunian, as well as high-ranking officials from Artsakh and Armenia, Diaspora representatives and foreign guests.
