His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, has issued a statement, expressing his support to the Armenian Army:
“We learned with deep sorrow about the death of our soldiers. We express our sympathy, patriarchal love and blessing to their families. Our soldiers are heroes and martyrs, because they sacrificed their lives for the Motherland, for our independence and our rights.
We express our full support to the brave Army. The Armenian Army is the guarantee of our Motherland’s security and independence. Strong Army means strong Motherland. We are confident that the brave soldiers will struggle with renewed strength to foil all attempts of the enemy to approach the territory of Artsakh.”
