Congratulatory Message of President Serzh Sargsyan to President Francois Hollande of the French Republic on French National Day
Distinguished Mr. President,
I cordially congratulate you and the friendly people of France on the occasion of French National Day, wishing your country further progress, prosperity and continued strengthening of its international positions.
I reaffirm my personal devotion to the Armenian-French ages-old friendship and to the special relationship that exists between our countries.
I express my satisfaction with the high-level political dialogue between Armenia and France, the striking illustration of which have been our regular meetings held in the recent period.
I highly value your participation in the commemorative ceremony to mark the Armenian Genocide Centennial held on April 24 in Yerevan, which once again stressed your country’s and your personal loyalty to universal values, particularly to the international struggle aimed at the prevention of that gravest crime against humanity.
Armenia attaches great importance to France’s involvement in the Nagorno-Karabakh peace process and greatly appreciates the co-chairs’ consistent efforts to ensure peace and stability in our region.
I strongly believe that we will continue concerted efforts to reinforce and deepen ties between Armenia and France both in bilateral and multilateral formats for the benefit of our peoples.
Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.
