On 1 June Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan sent a congratulatory address in connection with the International Children's Day.
The address reads:
I convey sincere congratulations on my own behalf and on behalf of the Artsakh Republic authorities on the International Children's Day.
Children are our wealth, joy and future. Our entire life changes with their birth, acquiring new meaning and significance. And from this very moment on we bear responsibility for their healthcare, education and upbringing.
Artsakh authorities do their best to secure peaceful and prosperous life for our children, to make them healthy, happy and carefree. Diverse programs annually implemented in our republic pursue this very aim.
Unfortunately, the Four Day April war has left an indelible mark in the memory of Artsakh's little residents. Thus, each of us ought to do everything possible to see laughter and smile, songs and joy on our children's lips, for their life to be filled with the brightest colors and hues.
I once again congratulate everybody on this wonderful holiday and wish clear blue sky, green-lit and smooth way as well as great success in your entire life".
