Mikheil Saakashvili congratulated ethnic Armenians residing in Georgia on Christmas Holiday
My dear fellow citizens,
Today, when Armenian Orthodox Church celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ I want to congratulate you, Georgian citizens on this day. The friendship of Georgian and Armenian people stood for centuries and went through many historic hardships, and today you actively participate in the construction process of Georgian statehood.
I want to congratulate Archbishop Vazgen, spiritual father of those people, who are indivisible part of Georgian state and create unique culture in multi-ethnic Georgia. Armenian people serve for strengthening democratic state and success in our country.
Merry Christmas to you all and I wish you peace, health and welfare of your families.
The President of Georgia
