On behalf of the Artsakh Republic authorities and myself personally I cordially congratulate you on the professional holiday.
You educate and bring up the future citizens of our republic, and along with imparting knowledge give them the first lessons of life that to a great extent determine the future of our Motherland and people. Your painstaking work has a worthy contribution in building the independent statehood of Artsakh, its development and strengthening.
We are well aware about your difficult, responsible and very thankful work. Everyone of us whenever and wherever meet our teachers always approach them with deep respect, eager to be somehow useful, convey the warmth and care that we gained years ago. It is a centuries-old attitude that our people have always had towards the profession of a teacher.
Having an educated and progressive generation is a call of the times and one of our pivotal tasks we have to fulfill. For this very reason the state keeps the sphere of education and science in the spotlight of constant attention.
I congratulate you once again on the Day of Teachers and wish peace, robust health, happiness and all the best to you and your families".
