ArmInfo.The third President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan sent a congratulatory message to the citizens of Armenia on the occasion of Independence Day. In the message of Sargsyan, in particular, it says: "I congratulate you on the 28th anniversary of the Independence of Armenia. This is one of the most important holidays in our country.
I would like to touch upon the topic of responsibility and obligations. In this regard, I will quote the statesman Garegin Nzhdeh : "Independence, an independent Fatherland, before being right, is a duty, and those who deviate from this duty lose their moral right to exist."
Sargsyan emphasized that independence is very specific, it is our language, our faith, traditional family, culture, that part of the land that is watered with blood and sweat from the citizens of Armenia, concluded within the borders of our sovereign state.
"And therefore, it is our duty to protect and protect our values from all kinds of encroachments, and to be vigilant when propagandists of rootless, false values and attitudes knock on our doors, preserve the integrity of our national values, develop, protect them and pass them on to future generations. Without hesitation, resist all the dangers that threaten our spiritual and physical security, not allowing any progress, "said the third president, emphasizing that it is our duty to the motherland.
The third president emphasized that reality is the most brutal enemy of propaganda and political myths. Sargsyan believes that at this stage <we must separate the falsity from the truth, and not question the fact of victory in the war for independence, instead of praising and ennobling the courage of our sons, to value them with dignity, with dubious goals to start discussions and break the spirit of a victorious soldier, to consider failures to achieve almost thirty years of independent statehood, to draw dividing lines in the midst of his own public is more dangerous than an enemy shot>. "I am sure that at this stage of our centuries-old history, we will be responsible for our duty to protect the independence restored at the cost of many victims and deprivations, we will rise above all transient and petty interests, we will be united and sober, also recognizing the external dangers that threaten our common the only Motherland, "concluded Serzh Sargsyan.
