On behalf of the Artsakh Republic authorities and myself personally I extend my heartfelt congratulations on your professional holiday - the Day of Teachers.
You enjoy the respect and love of our people and carry out a significant and responsible mission of educating and upbringing the younger generation.
During the long and arduous school years, you stand by your students, teaching them not only how to read and write, but also tell the difference between right and wrong, alongside with knowledge you give them unforgettable lessons that accompany them throughout their life years.
We always remember you, your kind advice and preachment, your caring and heedful attitude, the warmth of your great soul, which you generously gave to us, to your countless pupils. We remember and are grateful to you. Always be healthy, joyous and happy. Let the seeds you sow in the field of science grow and yield abundant crops for the benefit of our Motherland.
I once again congratulate you, dear teachers, wishing peace, robust health, success and all the best to you and all your relatives and friends."
