Statement By Armenian Caucus Vice Co-Chair Rep. Adam Schiff on Armenia’s 25th Independence Day

Today, I join with my
Armenian-American constituents and the vibrant Armenian community across the
world in saying ‘Oorakh Angakhootyan Or,’ as we celebrate the 25th anniversary
of the independence of the Republic of Armenia. And while their path to independence
has never been easy, Armenians persevered through foreign domination, outside
threats and the first genocide of the 20th century. There’s no doubt that the
Armenian community is an invaluable asset to our society, breaking new ground
socially, economically and politically across the nation, and enriching our
customs, traditions and quality of life. 

On this important day, I wish to
say congratulations to the people of Armenia, to Armenians in America, to my
Armenian-American constituents, and to all Armenians around the world.
