''Dear Prime Minister,
On behalf of the UNESCO, l am honoured to congratulate you on your re-election as Prime Minister of Armenia and to wish every success in thé continuation of your role in this high office.
l am thankful for Armenia's strong commitment to the values enshrined in the UNESCO Constitution. As a defender of multilateralism, Armenia has worked closely with our Organization since its admission in 1992, particularly with our work to foster international cooperation for the advancement of education for all, preservation of cultural heritage, sustainable development and freedom of expression.
l warmly recall our meetings together during the 17th Summit of Heads of State and Government of La Francophonie in Yerevan in October 201 8, as well as at the 40th session of the UNESCO General Conference in Paris in November 2019, during which we exchanged ideas on thé prospects of strengthening the cooperation between the Organization and Armenia, including through the
Matenadaran, a scientific research institute included in the Memory of the World Register for its work in safeguarding ancient manuscripts.
In the context of ongoing global turbulences, such as the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change, UNESCO plays a vital role in working alongside Member States to address pressing challenges in education, the sciences, culture and communication.
l am confident that the solid cooperation that exists between Armenia and UNESCO will be further enhanced during your second term of office. You may rest assured that l, for my part, will spare no effort to that end.
I once again congratulate you and offer best wishes of success''.
