President of the United States Barack Obama sent a congratulatory message to President Serzh Sarkisian on the occasion of Independence Day of the Republic of Armenia.
“On behalf of the United States, I congratulate you and the people of Armenia as you celebrate 25 years of independence this September 21.
The United States has been a steadfast partner of Armenia from the first days of its independence. We remain committed to the promise of those early years, when Armenians proudly raised their tricolor flag for the first time since 1920. Today, we again affirm our belief that a secure, prosperous, and democratic Armenia is essential for the security for the Armenian people and for the region more broadly.
We thank Armenia for its support of our shared goals, particularly its response to the Syrian refugee crisis and its contributions to global peacekeeping operations and nuclear security. We will continue to work together to help Armenia realize its full potential.
I wish you and the people of Armenia all the best as you celebrate 25 years independence,” the U.S. President’s congratulatory message says”.
