After learning about the clashes taking place at the Line of Contact of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and Azerbaijan, His Holiness Aram I, Supreme Patriarch immediately contacted President of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Bako Sahakyan and expressed his support and the support of the Catholicosate of the Great House of Cilicia to the army of brave soldiers of Karabakh.

“Within the whole meaning of the word, we support Karabakh, its brave army, people and government. The protection and reinforcement of Karabakh’s independence are a sacred duty for us. Especially on these days when Karabakh has been attacked by Azerbaijan, the sons of our nation in Armenia and in the territory of the Diaspora need to express their support for the defense of Karabakh in action because the defense of Karabakh is the defense of Armenia and vice versa,” Catholicos Aram I said.

The Supreme Patriarch also expressed his high appreciation to the President of Karabakh for his exemplary patriotism and courage. President Sahakyan explained to Aram I in detail how the Azerbaijanis made a surprise attack last night and how the Armenian army powerfully attacked and pushed the Azerbaijanis back, making them suffer heavy human losses and military casualties. He added that the clashes continue.

In the morning, Aram I also had a meeting with newly appointed Ambassador of the Republic of Armenia to Lebanon Samvel Mkrtchyan. They talked about the political situation in Lebanon and the Armenian community of Lebanon.
