President Serzh Sargsyan sent today a congratulatory message to the Pulitzer Prize winner, poet Peter Balakian on the occasion of his 65th birth anniversary and wished him excellent health, happiness and prolific literary work.
“You have once again raised the theme of the Armenian Genocide in the American literature and have once again reminded the world community on the tragedy of our nation and our rebirth.
Your creations, which are full of high morality and fascinating charm, are love and appreciated by many readers as well as by the critics which is vividly testified to by the Pulitzer Prize recently awarded to you. Your literature is all-human and lasting. In Armenia, we love you and we are proud of you,” reads the congratulatory message of the President of Armenia.
