On 5 November Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan sent a congratulatory address to the participants of "Armenia-25: The World and Women" conference held by the Women's Council of the Republican Party of Armenia.
The address runs as follows:
"Dear participants of the conference,
I welcome all of you and congratulate on launching this significant event.
During the whole history of our people an Armenian woman has always been the symbol of native hearth and family, a pivotal guarantee of maintaining national traditions, patriotic upbringing of the younger generation. It is impossible to imagine the longevity of our people, our victories, self-confidence and optimism without these values.
Nowadays Armenian women are actively involved in public and political life too, they have tangible role in the state building process, defense of the Motherland, educational, upbringing and other spheres of state's life. It is a great accomplishment, which is also a necessary precondition for a steady development of the state and becoming a part and parcel of the civilized world.
The Women's Council of the Republican Party of Armenia is especially distinguished by political and public activism and holding this event is a conspicuous proof of that.
Topics to be discussed during the conference are significant and urgent and it is welcome that women representing Artsakh's political and public sphere are also participating in your activities.
I wish all of you efficient work, successes in life and your activity".
