“What happens in Karabakh nowadays is another trial for the Armenian people, this time imposed by the Azerbaijani government. I have no doubt we will overcome this challenge with honor. Blinded by hatred, dizzied by the smell of oil, the Azerbaijani government does not realize that power is not in the number of tanks, but it is in the light reflected from the new generation of Artsakh and Armenia. It is the light that has united us all today, turning us into one fist that will hit the enemy who threatens our safety”, Serzh Sargsyan said.
