Nikol Pashinyan congratulated the citizens of Armenia, Artsakh and  the Diaspora on Republic Day

ArmInfo.RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan congratulated the citizens of Armenia, Artsakh and the Diaspora on Republic Day. This was reported by the press service of  the government. The statement in particualr reads: 

''Dear people, proud citizens of the Republic of Armenia, Proud  citizens of the Republic of Artsakh, Proud Armenians of the Diaspora.   Congratulations to all of us on Republic Day!  After taking control  of Alexandropol on May 15, 1918, the Turkish vanguard forces reached  the village of Sardarapat on May 21: it seemed that they would  inevitably enter Etchmiadzin and Yerevan, and the rest of the  Armenians were doomed.  The situation was critical.  However, it was  necessary to stand up to the deadly attack. Aram Manukyan was the one  to embody the fighting spirit and the strength of the Armenians.   Always fair and decisive, Aram used to say in those days of despair.   "Let us all get down to work, and we are sure to be on the winning  side!" Despair soon changed to enthusiasm. In the heroic battles of  Sardarapat, Bash-Aparan and Gharakilisa, the Armenian nation once and  for all earned its worthy place on the world map. The May victories  led to the establishment of the Republic of Armenia.  The heroes of  Sardarapat, Bash-Aparan and Gharakilisa became the builders of  Armenia's independence. Eternal glory to Aram Manukyan, Tovmas  Nazarbekyan, Movses Silikyan, Dro, Nzhdeh, Daniel and Poghos  Bek-Pirumyans, Yezidi cavalry detachment commander Jhangir Agha!   Glory to the Armenian army, the people's volunteer corps fighters and  clergy who fought with arms in hand!  On those heroic days of 1918,  about 1500 men and women worked hard in the territory of today's  Yerablur to erect military fortifications on the initiative of Aram  Manukyan. Yerablur was the defensive end of Yerevan. The victorious  battle of Sardarapat prevented Yerevan from being captured, and  Yerablur became a special place of pilgrimage years later to  commemorate the heroes who gave their lives for the freedom of   Artsakh.

Today we are committed to the victorious contribution and message of  Sardarapat and Artsakh, we believe that we will have the Armenia of  our dream with a just and creative society striving for progress and  change, a strong economy and an even stronger and more modern army.   Dear compatriots, Aram Manukyan used to say. ":you must know that I  am powerless without you. The entire Armenian nation is a hero, and  our efforts will go in vain unless people want ... to work and save  the Armenians from impending doom." Therefore, let us all get down to  work for the sake of the Armenia of our dream!  I am convinced that  the victorious citizen of the Republic of Armenia will never again  allow the loss of statehood or citizenship, the loss of our sovereign  rights, the loss of faith and optimism.  The Republic of Armenia must  exist on the planet Earth forever, the flag of Armenia must fly high  forever, symbolizing our spirit and pride, our freedom and  sovereignty''.
