The Republic of Western Armenia (State of Armenia) has formed absolutely legitimate bodies of the state power – the National Assembly (Parliament), the Government and the institution of the Presidency.

Your active participation in the elections of deputies of the National Assembly (Parliament) of Western Armenia and your vote were very important both in protecting the rights granted to the Armenian people in the international arena, and in maintaining the legitimacy, strengthening and developing the state structures of the Republic of Western Armenia (Armenia) which are currently entrusted with the task of protecting and realizing these rights.

The rule of rights, laws and legitimacy, the protection of Armenians and the country are extremely important principles and processes, but they are insufficient if actions are not taken to implement and realize the rights given to the Armenian people. Currently many people know that during the Paris Peace Conference, a number of decisions were made regarding the inalienable and irrevocable rights of the Armenian people.

It should be recalled that the Republic of Western Armenia (State of Armenia) has been carrying out fundamental work in this direction since 2018. Eight Statements-Appeals were sent to the UN and the Heads of States – permanent members of the UN Security Council, an Appeal was sent to the European Parliament, and a Decision was made to recognize the independence of the Republic of Artsakh.

All of these processes are ongoing and, if necessary, will be transferred to the relevant international instances, including judicial ones.

You can find more details about all above-mentioned facts in the Collection of the reference book “Unified political and legal package of documents on the protection of the rights of Western Armenia and the Armenians of Western Armenia”.

We believe that we will definitely win this difficult but fair struggle for the right of the Armenian people to live, develop and have a future.

This is confirmed by the properly held elections of deputies of the National Assembly (Parliament) of Western Armenia of the 3rd convocation and your active participation in them gave a new impetus to the protection of the legitimate rights of the Armenian people.
