On 10 December Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan sent a congratulatory address to acting Prime-Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan.
The address runs as follows:
"Honorable Mr. Pashinyan,
On behalf of the Artsakh people, authorities and myself personally I convey my congratulations to You on the occasion of the convincing victory of the block You lead in the snap elections of the Republic of Armenia National Assembly.
I feel hopeful that the new National Assembly and Government will in every possible way contribute to developing and strengthening of the Republic of Armenia, cementing the Armenia-Artsakh-Diaspora trinity and implementing programs of nationwide importance.
The solution of problems our statehood and people face, further strengthening of the defense and security system, ensuring social and economic progress, raising the living standards of the population are the main guidelines that should be at the basis of the activities of the two Armenian republics and their political leadership.
I wish You, all our brothers and sisters in the Republic of Armenia peace, robust health, success and victories for the glory of our Motherland and people".
