ArmInfo.The Armenian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on the occasion of the First Republic Day.

"On May 28, Armenia and Armenians all over the world celebrate the  102nd anniversary of the May heroic battles and the First Armenian  Republic. This day, which has a special role in our thousand-year  history, addresses two important messages: after the genocide, which  took place in most part of the historical homeland - the Armenian  national struggle for survival took place in Sardarapat, Gharakilisa,  Bash-Aparan, and after the May victories, the Armenian people once  and for all reaffirmed their right to exist, "the Armenian Foreign  Ministry reported to ArmInfo. 

Secondly, as the Armenian Foreign Ministry continued, after a break  of more than five centuries, the Armenian statehood was restored, and  the Republic of Armenia became a subject of international relations.   "The First Republic was formed during the First World War and played  an important role in ending the war in our region on both the  military and diplomatic fronts.  The Republic of Armenia actively  participated and, finally, became part of international peace  treaties that determine the outcome of the World War. 

The first Republic of Armenia defended the right of the Armenian  people to exist and self-determination, including in Artsakh,  formulating the issue of the status of Artsakh as an international   task.  Although existing for a short time, the First Republic laid  the foundations for internal and political institutions, and also  formed the guidelines according to which Armenian statehood is  developing, "the Armenian Foreign Ministry emphasized.  In  conclusion, the ministry noted that on May 28, combining efforts in  the national liberation struggle and building statehood, it is still  a key symbol of the two challenges that the Armenian statehood and  pan-Armenian are still facing: ensuring security and sovereignty.
