with the Day of NKR State Independence Referendum and Constitution
Dear compatriots, In the modern history of Artsakh December 10 twice
proved to be pivotal. In 1991 on this day the Artsakh Armenians
expressed their unified will and confirmed the dedication of creating
an independent statehood. On the same day of 2006 again through the
nation-wide referendum the basic law of our state, the Constitution,
was adopted registering another great victory of our state, which
succeeded in defending its independence and freedom and was firmly
staying on the path of democracy. December 10 is also celebrated
as International Human Rights Day. This fact is symbolic for
itself as the Artsakh movement, the birth and the very existence
of the Nagorno Karabagh Republic are the integral parts of human
rights, the reflection of the basic universal rights of equality
and self-determination of nations. The people and authorities of
Artsakh are adherent to the principles that the December 10 twin
holiday has entrusted with us. For us the powerful, independent,
sovereign, democratic and legal state is an exclusive value that
has no alternative. I congratulate our entire people on this crucial
holiday and wish peace, robust health and all the best. Stepanakert,
December 10, 2009.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
