The letter particularly says:
On behalf of the National Assembly of the Republic of Artsakh and on my own behalf I congratulate you on your election as President of the European Parliament.
The mission of the European Parliament in promoting freedom, human rights and democratic values is highlighted not only in the European Union but also beyond its borders.
In Artsakh, we also believe in democratic values. Our people are also consistent in their aspiration to develop a democratic state and to strengthen the rule of law.
In this respect, in Artsakh, we highly appreciate our ties with the members of the European Parliament which is a unique resource for sharing experiences.
I hope that during your presidency the European Parliament will be more integrating for structures and peoples who share its values.
Once again I congratulate you and wish you productive activity for the sake of democratic Europe and open the gates of Europe".
