Vadim Krasnoselsky Hosted the Artsakh Republic Delegation


The Nagorno-Karabakh Delegation headed by the Chairman of the National Assembly of the republic Artur Tovmasyan arrived in Tiraspol to take part in the festive events dedicated to the 30th Anniversary of the PMR. The Head of the Pridnestrovian State met with the fraternal peoples’ representatives as well.

Greeting the guests, Vadim Krasnoselsky noted the similarities of the two republics’ history who fight for their independence. The Pridnestrovian President congratulated the Artsaks people, who alike Pridnestrovians, celebrate their main State Holiday on September 2. 29 years ago, the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic proclaimed its independence. “Our republics formed before the Soviet Union’s collapse and not after. We formed being an answer to nationalists’ intrigues; and everything that we wished was not to be destroyed, not to fade away into nothing and on the contrary save ourselves, our language, our culture, our traditions and our people. We are two states created and recognized by the people but still unrecognized by the international community “Vadim Krasnoselsky emphasized wishing peace and creativity to the citizens of Nagorny Karabakh.

As a sign of mutual friendship and in the light of the 30th Anniversary of the PMR, Vadim Krasnoselsky conveyed the Order of Friendship to Arayik Harutyunyan, the Head of the Artsakh Republic. The President of the PMR presented additional rewards to the Nagorny Karabakh Delegation members; these were jubilee medals for contribution to international relations development and expansion of friendly ties between the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic and the Republic of Artsakh.

Ending the solemn part of the meeting, the participants moved on to discuss specific issues of interaction between the two states: they talked about joint projects and strengthening contacts in various fields, discussed the forthcoming Pridnestrovian trade mission opening in Nagorno-Karabakh. Artur Tovmasyan noted the rapid development and positive changes of Pridnestrovie since his last visit to the republic in 2016: “We, in Artsakh closely follow the formation of your young state and are sincerely happy with our loyal friends’ achievement. Political stability is maintained in Pridnestrovie - the most important thing that serves an important condition for the effective functioning of state institutions. The national economy is developing progressively, the level of well-being of the population is constantly increasing. Undoubtedly, all this creates reliable preconditions for creative work and allows the people of Pridnestrovie look confidently into the future”.

Summing the meeting up, Vadim Krasnoselsky thanked the interlocutors for their attention to Pridnestrovie and systemic interaction based on meaningful and constructive dialogue, traditions of friendship and mutual respect.
