The celebration of the 122nd anniversary of the ARF recently took
place in the hall of the culture and youth palace of Stepanakert and
was concluded with a concert programme.

In his welcoming speech Leader of the Artsakh Diocese of the Armenian
Apostolic Church Archbishop Pargev Martirosyan congratulated
the party members on the 122nd anniversary and emphasized that
the ARF-Dashnaktsutsyun was the party which managed to preserve
its national character, its fighting capacity and the classical
form of a party throughout its history. “Today the dream of the
ARF-Dashnaktsutsyun is a reality in the form of the two Armenian
republics,” the leader of the Artsakh Diocese noted and underlined
its role in the protection of the Armenian nation. Simultaneously he
drew everybody’s attention to the Armenian community in Russia which,
according to him, faces a serious problem of merging. We must jointly
save the fragments of the Armenian Diaspora. Each Armenian is dear
to us,” Archbishop Pargev Martirosyan added.

Head of the ARF Armenian Cause and Political Affairs Office Kiro
Manoyan noted in his speech that the ARF-Dashnaktsutsyun has set about
the worldwide recognition of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic and noted
that the results of it are apparent. When speaking about the process
of Karabakh conflict settlement he underlined that Artsakh must have
its own position whereas official Yerevan must not only take it into
consideration but also support it to come true.

According to Kiro Manoyan the only way to solve the problems of the
Armenians is to have a powerful Armenia. Without powerful Armenia
all the achievements in Artsakh will be endangered,” he concluded.

At the completion of the event Chairman of the NKR National Assembly
Ashot Ghoulyan made a congratulatory address on behalf of the NKR
authorities and expressed his hope towards the continual efforts of
the ARF-Dashnaktsutsyun in the consolidation of the Armenian statehood.
