"Dear President Biden,

On behalf of the Government of the Republic of Armenia and myself, I warmly congratulate you and the United States of America people on Independence Day.

The universal values ​​of freedom, justice, and democracy that founded the United States of America and the ideals reflected in the Declaration of Independence continue to inspire and encourage worldwide.

The multi-layered and close ties between Armenia and the United States, the significant growth and development of cooperation in recent years, and the inclusion of new areas in the bilateral agenda emphasize the strength of our partnership based on democratic principles, the rule of law, and the protection of human rights.

I am happy to record that the commitment to further expanding our cooperation in democratic reforms, promotion of economic and energy resilience, justice, fight against corruption, security cooperation, and other fields was reflected in the vision of raising the strategic dialogue between Armenia and the USA to the level of strategic partnership.

Armenia greatly values ​​the role of the United States in the peace-building process in our region and deeply appreciates the US support for the sovereignty, independence, democracy, territorial integrity, and inviolability of the Republic of Armenia's borders in accordance with the 1991 Alma-Ata Declaration.

I want to take this opportunity to reaffirm Armenia's commitment to the peace agenda and express confidence that our continued and strengthening partnership at this critical time will contribute to building a peaceful and more prosperous future for our two countries and the region.

I congratulate you again on Independence Day and wish you and the friendly people of the USA peace, prosperity, and continued progress."
