YEREVAN. – We must keep our statehood and sovereignty, which are the guarantor of our dignified and secure life, as sacred. Human Rights Defender (Ombudsman) Arman Tatoyan stated this in his congratulatory message on First Republic Day of Armenia. He added as follows, in particular:
In our own state, the real protector and supporter of man, his dignity and rights is the state itself that is guided by its own democratic structures and the motion of the rule of law.
Our unity, solidarity and respect for each other, the acknowledgment of the value of our own statehood will be the best tribute to the people who have achieved for us, at the cost of their lives, the right to live freely and independently.
We have created the independent Republic of Armenia with confidence in and historical accountability towards our own strength.
