5 March, 2020
Every year, on Vazgen Sargsyan's birthday, we once again appreciate his role in the formation of our statehood and remember his feat as an Armenian, as a national and political figure.

The First Minister of Defense of the Republic of Armenia was confident that every nation in its history must fight till the end at least once in history. Today, we continue to move forward, build an increasingly powerful army, a powerful state having Vazgen Sargsyan's vision in mind.

Vazgen Sargsyan was an intellectual, a man of bright ideas, who at the same time proved his truthfulness and cultivated patriotism by serving as an example. We can say with confidence that several generations have been brought up with his very image in their minds.

“This is a country of universal love. The capital of this country starts from a trench". Sparapet, this message is always in our mind. We are working every day to make the foundation of our country, the trenches, invulnerable.

Dear compatriots, I congratulate all of us on the birthday of National Hero of Armenia Vazgen Sargsyan. Glory to you, great Armenian!
