President Khachaturyan welcomed those present and noted:

"First of all, I congratulate us all on today's event. As people put it, life goes on. It happened so, that today's beautiful event coincided with some problems, but we decided not to postpone it. Many will ask why we aren't dealing with the problems we have, but, you know, if we start prioritizing problems, we will fail to tell what comes first. After the 1988 earthquake, we have always prioritized the elimination of its consequences. And as we see today, years and decades later, we unfortunately haven't been able to completely remedy these consequences. However, I am sure that its end has already come.

You live in that environment and can see that the state truly does everything possible to make sure there aren't any earthquake consequences left, and that the people who were affected by it can finally get what they deserve, recover the losses they had.

Your moving to new apartments today is dedicated to that. This is a little special. It's special, because the people who will enter their apartment today will have everything. There was a discussion at "Armenia" foundation, regarding the fact that there people are in need, and once they get their apartments, empty walls, what will they do? So a decision was made to turn to the local authorities, benefactors, benefactors, asking for help. I think this is a very right initiative and people can just enter the house and live there.

I want to express my gratitude to all those people who participated in the construction of this building.

I believe that in the future the citizens living here will truly make a big contribution in the strengthening of Armenia in the future. Be sure that the authorities of Armenia are doing everything to make our lives more prosperous, to make our country safer, and they are still doing everything today for our compatriots in Artsakh to feel safe. Those difficulties will be overcome, but we must overcome them together. I congratulate all those who will enter new apartments today."
