Statement by the President on the Occasion of Armenian National Day
The people of the United States join the people of Armenia in celebrating Armenia’s day of independence today. We deeply value the many cultural and historic ties that bind our two countries. The United States gains strength as a nation from the contributions of so many Americans of Armenian ancestry. We congratulate the people of Armenia on their national day.
