"I have learnt with deep sorrow about the death of People's Artist, public figure, deserving son of the Armenian nation Sos Sargsyan.
Sos Sargsyan was a great intellectual, a person, who dedicated his entire life to the honorable mission of devotedly serving his native people.
Sos Sargsyan's contribution to the process of development of Armenian culture and the patriotic education of many generations is invaluable. Due to his limitless talent and outstanding work he gained respect and recognition far beyond the borders of Armenia.
Sos Sargsyan has had a substantial contribution to the Artsakh national-liberation movement and the development of the Nagorno Karabagh Republic. He was always with Artsakh, assisting by all means possible state building process in our country.
Sos Sargsyan's patriotic activity was rated high in Artsakh where he has been decorated with the "Grigor Lousavorich" Order and other state awards.
On behalf of the Artsakh people, authorities and personally myself I express my sincere sympathies and condolences to the relatives and friends of the deceased, to all of us over the irretrievable loss.
