Brussels, 12/04/18 – The Armenian General Benevolent Union congratulates the newly sworn in President of the Republic of Armenia, Armen Sarkissian, and salutes him on his inauguration.

This important milestone comes at a time when our nation faces many complex regional and global challenges, as well as exciting opportunities for prosperity. As we mark a new era in the governing of our Republic under the revised constitution adopted in 2016, we see great potential for advancements that will require dynamic leadership and collaboration among all parties.

With the shift to a parliamentary system, Armenia’s new president assumes the role of head of state with responsibility for the stability and continuity of the nation’s institutions. We look to President Sarkissian to successfully fill this important role to effectively reflect the collective aspirations of our people, and our shared values and ideals.

AGBU also thanks outgoing President Serge Sargsyan for his years of dedication and service to the nation in providing leadership in critical times starting with the Karabakh movement to the present. During his presidency, AGBU built upon a long-standing tradition of working with Armenia’s leadership to further develop our activities there in the fields of education, the arts, as well as social and humanitarian services.

AGBU looks forward to continue working constructively with the leaders of the Republic of Armenia to benefit our global nation.
