I heartily congratulate you and the friendly people of Syria on the occasion of the national holiday of the Syrian Arab Republic.
The Armenian-Syrian friendship, coming from the depths of centuries and strengthened by historical trials, is the foundation on which the fraternal relations of the two countries continue to develop.
I am convinced that Syria has enough strength and resilience to overcome the consequences of the devastating earthquake and other challenges the country is facing.
I would like to confirm our readiness to contribute and support the Syrian reconstruction process in this difficult period for Syria.
I wish you good health and success, and lasting peace and prosperity to the friendly people of Syria.”
