Today, President Serzh Sargsyan visited the US Embassy in Yerevan. He congratulated Ambassador John Heffern, the staff of the Embassy and in their person the people of the United States on the 236th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and creation of the American state.
Serzh Sargsyan has also sent a congratulatory message to the President of the United States of America Barack Obama on the occasion of Independence Day. The message states:
I cordially congratulate you and the friendly people of the United States of America on the occasion of the Independence Day.
It is very encouraging to see that today the universal human values proclaimed by the founding fathers of your country in the 18th century are still vital, especially for those who continue to struggle for independence, freedom, justice and equality.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Armenia and the United States. I have to proudly stress that our relations have had an upward development in these twenty years and reached their highest level ever. Of course, the ties between our nations have a much longer history in which especially the Armenian-American community has been playing a significant and visible role creating strong bonds between us. As our countries embark on a new decade of inter-state relations, we continue to remain committed to developing comprehensive partnership and close relationship with the United States.
The Armenian nation is grateful to the United States for its multifaceted and continuous support since the restoration of Armenia’s independence. The efforts of your country towards the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict are highly appreciated, too.
Congratulating once again on the occasion of the Independence Day, I wish you and your people peace and prosperity.
Please accept, your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration”.
